Found this new post on another forum. Info is verified........

Calico Jacks Marina & Motel will be staying open for the winter months! With trout/drum/tuna fishing still going strong, this gives folks the option to head down to Harkers and go out of Bardens inlet to get to the jetty and the Cape! Kudos to the folks at Lo'r Deck for keeping this operation going while the fishing is still hot! Good Fishing!!!

Thanks Drop. Ramped out of CJ's many times in past years - closest ramp to the cape. There's something special about the cape lookout area that keeps me coming back year after year, and I always seem to enjoy the run even when the fish ain't bitin'. Rounding the hook is a magical place for me - gateway to the Atlantic on the way out and always welcome and comforting when returning from a long and sometimes weary day at sea.

I havent had the pleasure of fishing the area yet. How big of a boat do you need out there in good seas??

That's a darn good answer, Topsail :) The size and type of boat, along with the seaworthiness and temperament of the fisherman might best determine what your definition of “good seas” might be. For me and my 21’ Carolina Skiff, at my age and ability to pick my days, it means 2’ or less. The swell, wind speed, and direction, can all play upon the condition of the seas at this particular location. Not being able to change any of that, the side of the rocks you choose to anchor up to can make a marginal day tolerable. In a small boat, you’re also wise to consider the changing sea and wind conditions as the day unfolds, lest you risk a very uncomfortable, and possibly dangerous ride back in to and through the inlet. In a small boat, with a N or NE wind, (which I prefer while fishing the rocks here) once you get in that inlet, you can expect a slow and wet ride back to the dock. Sorry I can’t make it more simple than that. My advice would be to go out a few times with someone in his boat, that has some experience with reading and knowing the general sea conditions in that area. ;) Hope that helps.

Hi Dave, wasn’t necessarily referring to the “secret” rock jetty with my comment of how nice the Cape area is. :p There is actually a lot of area and places aside from the jetty in that area to fish, though one might not know it by reading the fishing reports of Cape Lookout. That said, the rocks there can be nice – real nice - on certain days and at certain times of year.

That tells me what I need to know..guys. There are several places along the coast I just need to plan a day to "try" and make sure I have a back up plan so I dont get my feelings hurt!! LOL!!!
My boat is an old mid 70's 15' walk thru trihull. It was intended for lakes and rivers I suppose, but it rides (for a trihull) well, and floats high so I thought I may branch out a bit!
