Hi folks, I'm heading down to OBX for the week of Thanksgiving with the family and we're staying right next to Jeanette's pier. I really enjoy surf fish and have built up a bit of stuff including one decent heaver, one low end heaver and some cheapo rods and spinning reals for in close. I only get to go surf fishing once a year or every other year and in the same thanksgiving week situation. My general MO is load up the cart, grab some fresh mullet and walk down the beach from the house to whatever looks best within a few hundred yards. I then try to throw the heavers out far with a drum rig and chunk of mullet and set the other rods up in close with fish bites, shrimp, mullet etc. in. I've had ok luck with this some years and pretty poor luck other years. This year I'll finally be driving my truck down instead of the loaded family minivan so I went ahead and got the Hatteras driving permit and am hoping to head down to some of the ramps and hopefully make it down to the point. That being said any thoughts on my efforts, tips, spots or anyone who will be down that way and wouldn't mind someone tagging along try to pick up some knowledge, let me know.
