  1. i have a lot of luck with a simple high low rig. #2 circle hooks, just enough weight to hold... shrimp and or fish bites (pink/orange) -the free sand fleas beneath your feet work well too!. or lure: 1/4 oz lead head with a rubber body. You should find mullet, blues, spot, croaker, speckled trout, a little early for pomp. Fish are usually close in here so no need to throw your shoulder out casting for the moon. Works for me, your mileage may vary! If you work the sound further north (southern shores, duck) remember-fresh water license.

  3. Sorry neighbor, I CAN walk to kitty hawk pier from my home! That price tag, for that short of a pier, has made it the ONLY pier I will not go on! If they do indeed extend it as has been written about, I would STILL think that price outrageous. (although I have not looked into seasonal pass price- I'd rather fish the sand)
  4. May 23, 2020 | Seashore News Cape Point in Buxton closed on Saturday morning, May 23, to protect two American oystercatcher chicks. A protection buffer for the nest was installed on April 5, and the hatching of the eggs on May 23 resulted in an expanded protection area that includes the Bypass Road. ORV Ramp 44, the off-road vehicle ramp leading to the point, is open for .39 miles, with the rest of the shoreline closed to protect the oystercatcher chicks. Due to flooded conditions, Cape Point Campground is closed until May 28, 2020. All reservations for this time frame have been canceled and refunds will be issued. For current beach access status and updates, visit the Cape Hatteras National Seashore website at https://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/conditions.htm
