Plan your trip around the conditions. Weather is the biggest variable. Other than that, the drum can be anywhere. People have been catching numbers all over. Find a good ledge or a shoal between havelock and ocracoke and you just might be in business. Find some menhaden schools, bait slicks, or pushing fish for the upper advantage.

Fished 3 days from Cedar Island last week from my 13' Whaler. It blew so hard I never much made it beyond the rocks at the ferry landing. Never hooked up with a big drum. The day we left the island the sun came out, rain departed and the sound went flat. Oh well.

I think next year we will find a place to rent a house around Oriental.

Fished the back bays behind Cedar Island and the inshore fishing was very slow too. Lots of very small puppy drum. All in all a disappointment for the money I sank in the trip, not to mention all the pleading to the wife that I need to leave her and the kids and spend a few hundred bucks. :)

Oh well. There was plenty of booze, food, time with friends, and relaxation back on the screen porch at the trailer.

Interested to hear more opinions on best place to launch.
