    Well, I got a spur-of-the-moment option to head to the coast for a few days next week so I'm going. I was wondering what's the word on surf fishing around Oak Island? When and biting what? I'm mainly interested in the flounder bite but really anything will make me happy.

    Hello, all! I was recently invited to stay with a friend's family at their condo in the Oak Island area. One day, either Sat or Sun, I will likely join them on a charter trip. On the other, I plan to take my Trident13 out. I've fished further up the coast, but never that area. I don't feel...

    Hey guys, Caught this little guy out of the surf this weekend - any idea what kind of shark it is? Just curious, he didn't have too many identifying marks other than his head was pretty broad and heavy (not a bonnet though). He was a fun one though ... Other than that, the report was a...
