    Default Sound vs Surf in Avon in September.

    I will be in Avon in sept.

    Will be surf fishing some days down at the point. But also may try some beachfront surf fishing at the rental.

    I assume the best times for surf is an hour before high tide in a cut or slough before a sand bar if I can find a good one.

    However, isn’t high tide good for sound side fishing too?

    I’m only one man and am not very lucky (meaning I don’t know how to catch them).

    But how do you maximize soundside fishing vs surf fishing Time?




    I see what look like some good holes soundside at Avon and at the haulover parking lot south of Avon.

    Is it worth fishing sound?

    Definitely worth fishing the sound... flounder, trout and puppy drum that time of the year if you're wading. Gulp under a popping cork, spooks and topwater with walk the dog action, and spinners will all work for drum and trout. Net some finger mullet or mud minnows and fish the bank ledges with a Carolina Rig for flounder. I fish all day, but I'm partial to the outgoing tide rather than incoming both surf and sound-side. I've caught a lot of fish in Sept around Avon off of the beach, just find where the outgoing tide is cutting the bar or look for water that is rough then smooth, then rough again- the slack water is the channel between the near and offshore bar.

    I have fished the sound side at Hatteras in kayaks and wading. I try to find channels and flats or holes and flats. I like to fish the down stream side of flat near a drop off or hole. Flounder like to get the baitfish that wash off flats. I have had good luck with gulp shrimp and 3” or 4” gulp mullet with curly tail. Watch out though pinkish like to eat tails off. I also like zman swimming trout trick and curly tail. Zman is tougher than gulp tails stay on. I add scent to the zman.
