I am a new member of this forum. I joined because I will be heading up to the mountains in a couple of months and I thought this would be a good resource for helping me have a fun and productive time fishing for trout when I get up there. While looking over this forum I have been very impressed with the saltwater fishing you have in North Carolina. I fish mostly inshore in bays along the panhadle of Florida in the gulf but I will make the occasional offshore trip when I get invited. My inshore fishing consists mostly of targeting seatrout and redfish but I also catch plenty of other inshore species like spanish mackerel, ladyfish, jack crevalle, bluefish, and a few flounder. I imagine for the most part I'm likely to find the same fish here that you find there. I fish artificials and prefer topwater fishing. The pictures below are from a few of my trips so far this year. When I am close to shore I sometimes paddle over to get a picture if the fish is decent. If any of you are planning to come to north Florida in the near future and are looking for some fishing advise I will be glad to help you any way I can.
