Right on. I wasn't talking about casting it. I'm ordering a Fathom II 15 and a 12 foot surf rod to cast. That Fathom 60 I was just going to get on a 5'8 lite tiger for bottom fishing/sharking. Right now I'm just trying to find a place to stay. It's hard to believe with this covid crap that there aren't any rooms available south of nags head and kittyhawk. If i wanted to stay in a generic tourist trap area I would cut 4 hours off my drive and go to charleston. Its crazy that I live in NC and can be to Charleston SC in 4.5 hours but it takes us roughly 9 to 10 to get to the OBX. Any of you know anyone or have any names of places that I can call to find a room? We would like something with a small kitchen because of the kids and cooking our own food while we are there. I'll run braid on it. I fish braid/mono or flouro leader up here all the time. Mainly we just want to stay somewhere remote and have fun. I want the kids to have a blast and us not feel like we are in a touristy area.
