Rockhopper, could you please tell me a little about Oriental? Are there any piers to fish from, bank fishing opportunities, motel rates, etc.. I've always gone to Morehead but am looking at other locations.
NCAngler - couldn't have put it better myself! tcfisherman - there honestly isn't a bad creek to fish up & down from Oriental. Just watch the winds - today for example (SW winds) I've never seen so little water around Oriental!
Can't help much as I've only fished there once but have been through the area a few times here lately for work and plan to fish there more often in the future. I can tell you that one of our Angler Sponsors is right down the road in in Minnesott Beach - KneeDeep of Minnesott Beach Bait & Tackle 252-249-1786 Give him a call, I'm sure he can help you out.Im planning on renting a kayak next weekend in Oriental. I would like to fish Kershaw or Greens creek. Where are some boat ramps or good places to put in? Also are there any bait shops in Oriental?
Absolutely! It's a wise investment and will speed up your learning curve! (no, I'm not a guide).I own a small jon w/9.9 merc . I fish inside in caim weather . I very strongly recommend to HIRE A GUIDE . They will teach you how and where to fish. It will be the best bang for your buck you have ever spent. Every time I go to a new area., I first hire a guide for a 1/2 day. Money will spent I think Topsail will agree.
