View Full Version : Emerald Isle. Surf vs Pier?

We will be heading to Emerald Isle in the next couple of days. I have never been there before. Would I be better off fishing from piers or the surf? I am thinking in terms of people as well as most productive fishing.

Thanks for your help.

Personal preference.

I prefer the Fort Macon jetties/inlet area surf fishing.Others who prefer piers like the Bogue Inlet Pier and some like the Triple S and Sportsman's Pier.If I pier fish,I try to fish the piers closest to inlets.Cobes,kings,and spanish are still good possibilities right now,but the cobes might be gone soon.Current moves baitfish and baitfish draw predators.If you want pompano,walk the beaches looking for shelly areas and sand fleas.
