All the sharks I caught this year were off the pier king fishing on Oak Island. Missed a huge blacktip this summer, had a 15" bluefish for bait out on my king rig, gettin close to dark the water exploded. The bluefish managed to escape only missing his tail. Had to pull in and get him from unwrapped around my anchor line after that so decided to pack up and head for home.

Haven't did any fishing in the ft fisher area so i'm not sure how the fishing is there. I did do a little fishing off the kure beach pier just south of carolina beach. It was ok, there's a nice dropoff on the left side of the pier about half way down. :)

There is apparently great shark fishing from the Ft Fisher area (state not national park BTW & no alkehol permitted). Reasonable 4X4 access with appropriate closures during periods of turtle nesting and hatching.

On the old GoFish Board there were a number of folks that did pretty well on the 60 lb to unstioppable blacktips & other sharks in the summer. Also a slight chance to jump a tarpon down there fishing a big bait on the bottom.

On hatteras last year there tended to be more sharks in the fall rather than the summer. Tons of big sandbar sharks and a few lemmons. most of mine north of the point. Once they got over 7' I couldnt land them on my Drum rod. I hate to think how big some of them are that spooled me :jawdrop:
