I will be staying the week starting on Saturday 8/16 (next weekend). We have an oceanfront on Whalehead beach toward the northern end. We’ve been coming to Corolla for years but this will be the first time that I am going to try some surf fishing. Having an oceanfront, I couldn’t pass up the chance to give it a try since I can literally walk right out the door. I already know about getting the 10 day license. What I’d like to know are some pointers for fishing. What’s running this time of year? What is good / successful bait (squid, sand fleas, sea worms, etc.)? What about lures? Plugs, Kastmasters, spoons, rapalas, jitterbugs, etc.? I will go any time of day/night that gives me the best odds? So I guess overall, can I expect much luck? I consider myself a decent fisherman, but it’s hard to catch something if it’s not there. I don’t see a lot of questions about this here, but I am hoping for some good advice.
