Only thing missing in that post is the offer to let you drink beer while he catches the fish for ya.Although not in Emerald Isle, but back across the bridge, turn left and head towards Swansboro. On the right side, across from Dudley's is a little parking lot. Pull in there and follow the path to the bridge. Continue to follow it along the rip-rap. There's plenty of bait in the marsh on the right, and some flounder along that rip-rap. C-rigged finger mullet does the trick.
