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.

Welcome aboard, we are glad you've joined us. If you use the search function Topsail Angler posted a thread a couple of years ago with all of the public access points on Topsail. I will see if I can find that thread and post the link here for you.

edit to add: That was easy, he made it a sticky and it is the very first thread in this forum http://www.ncangler.com/forums/threads/26726-Topsail-Area-Public-Access-FISHING-spots

The 3 piers on the island are all pretty nice. I usually fish seaview myself. While on the piers you can use gotcha plugs and catch bluefish and Spanish mackeral, or bottom fish using the freshest shrimp possible or live or cut bait and pick up red and black drum, flounder and sea mullet with a few other species for suprise.

On the sound side use the same live or cut bait for the pretty much the same species or throw artificial baits as well.

As far as spots go you can walk under the 210 bridge and there's a path where a lot of people fish. At the very north end of the island there is a small drive on beach where depending on the tide you can walk around and fish the inlet and some marsh looking area. And the very south end of the island always had a lot of people fishing there. Google earth is your friend when it comes to finding new places to go.
