I am going to surf fishing for the first time. Admittedly I have done some surf fishing in the Puget Sound 25 years ago, but broke the surf rod I found in a house my dad bought in my second trip out...i digress. I will be staying at Carolina Beach State Park the week of September 9th. My wife and I have been in NC for about 15 years, and go pier fishing as we can. We have discussed surf fishing over the years, and decided to take the plunge...Bought 2 used fiberglass surf rods and reels at a pawn shop, to get our feet wet, so to speak. We plan on fishing the whole week, but I have no idea where would be a good place to start. I will most likley hit areas in Kure, Carolina, and Wrightsville beaches, and spend some time at Johnny Mercers Pier. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and I would be willing to travel a little during the week if the fishing were appreciably better nearish by.
