You can put in at Castle Hayne on the NE Cape Fear river. There's also Lake Waccamaw(sp), Waccamaw River, Black River, Long Creek, Holly Shelter Creek, Tabor Lake, ect. There's a ton of options. If you're not used to fishing tidal water it may take a little while to figure it out but it won't take long. One little bit of info is that the fish in these tidal waters will hit topwater all day long when the temps get warm enough. Rip some lips man!
