We have been going here for a while to avoid the costs of high season. Fishing has been good enough in the surf to keep the little guy interested, but I was wanting to step it up a bit. When we made our reservation they said the north end of the beach got beat real hard this winter. They said that they may still be pumping sand up when we get there. Just in case it hurts our surf fishing efforts, what would be the best choice for a headboat within reasonable drive from topsail? About how long to get there and how your experience with them was? I noticed some choices in Morehead and Wilmington, but dont know anybody that has used any of these places.
