Hi, my family and I will be visiting North Topsail Beach in less then a week and are planning on doing alot of fishing (mainly my father) while we are here. I was wondering what fish hit this time of year on the sound and beach and what bait suggestions you all may have. I am also looking for suggestions on close by public fishing areas. I've been researching all morning and keep getting the local pier and charters as results. I'm sure we will hit up a pier or two while there but it could get pricey if we go everyday. Any advice and fishing spots suggested would be highly appreciated.
