I'll be heading to Emerald Isle in 2 weeks (10/16) and I'm planning on doing some surf fishing at The Point.
High tide seems to be around 3:15am. So I'm planning on doing some night fishing.
Any suggestions for what time would be a good time for going out there?
Any fishing reports? I'm looking for Red Drum, Trout, Flounder.
Tips/tricks?

We have been doin good in the evening outgoing at the bottom of it the most, reds on cut bait have been the hot item, but in the next couple of weeks it will only get better. Bring a net also. im goin over Friday after work... The wife pulled a 32 inch red out couple days ago...

I was catching reds on all portions of moving tide this week right across the inlet from EI. The choppier the better. Dead whole fingers were the bait of choice but I think they'll eat almost anything right now....it's finding the 'hole' that holds them that's the trick.

People are catching more reds right now in the daytime...tide does not play as big of a part in the surf (as it does inshore)..so i would just go...unless you like the night fishing better...but the night time has resulted in more spots, sea mullets, croakers, and citation pinfish. Plus flounder key in on visual triggers more than reds, as they are primarily an ambush fish. I have caught a couple at night on cut baits but nothing worth bragging about. I'd hit it in the day so i could soak bait and toss some plastics in the suds. Just me though

I find it much easier fishing the daytime though I did catch some last Sunday night on a falling tide. Dead whole finger mullet work fine for reds and if they drift around in the suds just a little versus pinned to the bottom I think they work better.

We also had good luck catching flounder throwing soft plastics on the inlet side of the point.
So did we, but most were undersized. We were on the Bear side of the inlet. The blues and lizards were so think it was hard to get a finger mullet in long enough to catch a flattie!
