    What bait to use for big reds in surf mid Nov Lookout Point??

    I'm in Wilmington and last week caught plenty of finger mullet in the surf. Today I saw none. So I used cut bluefish. But I go to Cape Lookout for a couple days in mid November, camping. What can I count on to work? I can bring frozen mullet and shrimp, but is there a better but guaranteed bait sourceeither there or to bring with me? I can't count always on catching bait in the surf, I guess. Thanks!

    Also blue fish belly. Pinfish heads, mullet heads. I always try to catch finger mullet in October and vacuum seal and freeze them 8-10 per pack for when mullet is hard to find.

    Just returned from CALO Yesterday morning. Still plenty of mullet in the surf right now. Not sure how it will be for you in Nov. I second the mullet heads...
