What Jesse said.

Amywhere on the beach you can see a slough. Fort Macon area is good. Around the jettys at the inlet.

Shrimp or sand fleas (dig your own) for pompano and sea mullet.

Stingsilvers from the beach or gotchas from the piers for Spanish.

The surf should be full of schools of finger mullet. Cast net some to use for bait (match the hatch). Cut each finger mullet into 2-4 chunks depending on size. Fish mullet chunks on 2-dropper bottom rigs in the sloughs and slough openings. There should be hungry bluefish, possibly a puppy drum, and maybe a trout.
