Welcome Don!

Good place to start is askin questions, locally in your area and such, findin folks (such as in this forum) that will take the time to help ya find yer way around.

Local Walmarts have rule books (for free) on fishin and huntin and even have maps, there's another great resource I use which is, GMCO's water-proof chart book of North Carolina. Should be able to find one at a local tackle shop or at a tackle shop near the coast anywhere. They contain lat/lon's, waterways, facilities, ramps, marina's, local names of waterways and fishin areas.... all the good stuff! ;)

Check out: GMCO Maps & Charts

I'm not much the freshwater guy,, I actually stink at it.. but local shops, tourny's and folks should be in your area or areas you plan to fish, and the best way is ask questions, sign up for a tourny and do the "meet and greet" thing to start on your way to reducing the NC learnin curve.

Anywhoo... cant believe anyone let the post go by with 11 views before someone gave ya a Welcome!! :cool:

Welcome to the group and best of luck fishin!

I live just up the road from you in Hampstead, the fishing is great here and one of the best times of the year for fishin is upon us (Sept & Oct).

Welcome,

I'm sure you'll find the people and site informative and enjoyable. I've been fishing the intercoastal for only a few months. Still searching and experimenting with bate and location. Although I have not caught a large quantity of fish, I have managed to catch a decent variety! This includes trout, blues, and flounder, shark, stingrays and then some. As a matter of fact, I surprised myself and caught a cobia at Topsail inlet a couple of months ago:eek: . Never expected to, but man was it good eating:) ! Still hav'nt caught a sheepshead , red drum or black drum:confused: . Hopefully, it's just a matter of time. Well, have fun and and good luck fishing!
