Im going down to Nags Head for Thanksgiving with the family and I was just wondering if anyone had any advice or reports on fishing in the surf or elsewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

After this cold front the trout should show up on the Kitty Hawk beachs. Try soft plastics at day break, just walk the beach casting in the holes. When you find them wear them out. Good Luck.

PS Park in the lot beside the Black Pelican in Kitty Hawk and walk south.

You can also try the trout hole just north of Nags Head pier. You'll see the other anglers about 100 yards north of the peir. Using soft plastics is excellent advice. The small bridge on the causeway to Manteo is also quite popular right now and should be for the coming week. You'll see the old timers there on the south side of the bridge. Park on the west side. Good luck. For the record it's snowing right now in Colington harbour.

I am also planning on going to Nags Head for Thanksgiving. Any suggestion on which pier is the best to catch fish? And special advice for a beginner? Thanks in advance.

obx at Thanksgiving

There is parking just south of the Nags Head pier at Curlew st beach access. It's a short walk north under the pier to the hole. If you buy something from the pier, coffee, couple of today's hot color soft plastics, you can park at the pier. As for the best pier, it's the one where they be biting.:rolleyes: For tips I would scan and search this site. Good luck and welcome to the outer banks.

Thanks for the parking info. Plan to hit the beach at day break Wednesday morning and see what I can do. Has anyone had any luck with Gulp Alive Pearl White 3" swimming mullet? If not, what is the hot color right now?

Thanks

Guys I checked with both Avalon and Nags Head Pier. Doesn't seem to be much activity so far this week. Also chatted with a few surf fishers - same answer. So I am hesitating paying the money with little chance of catching something...
