Hi guys, I'm a new member here but a long time angler. I have been fishing since I've been walking and this year I was looking to get into some serious Shark action on Emerald Isle (beach house rented, Penn 6/0 bought, big tackle, etc). Unfortunately this will not be possible due to the ban so I am looking for any alternative spots close by to shark fish. I was thinking about getting bait (rays, bluefish) the first few days in EI then renting a kayak and trying Fort Macon or Atlantic beach but I'm unsure how crowded the beaches are during the day as I would like to fish through the day(s). Thanks for any help!
