Heading to EI next week. Staying in Beacon's Reach area of Pine Knoll's Shores. Looking through TA and internet search just provides too many choices. I was hoping for some more specific recommendations based on my specific needs and location.
Kayak and stand up paddle board rental....best place to rent close to our location. My issue here is sound access. Our condo is on the ocean side. There is a marina in Beacon's Reach but I do not know if 1) they have rentals and 2) if we will have easy access to parking and the water there.
My sons want to fish....but one son does not want to go in open ocean. So the compromise I guess would be to go fishing in the sound. Your thoughts and recommendations on a charter company/captain. Again, so many choices online.
Someone mentioned crabbing and ghost crabs? Anyway, I don't even have the first clue as to what to do, do you keep them and eat them or just the novelty of catching? I ask because my two youngest boys spend hours in the creek by our house finding, catching etc all sorts of creatures. They would love to do this, but I don't know what to do, where to go, how to do it, etc. The post I read, which I cannot find now, mentioned using raw chicken?? Any help appreciated.
Planning to bring groceries to avoid crowds there, but will want to buy fresh local fish and shrimp. What shop is closest to me in Pine Knolls that has fresh local catch?
Farmer's market during the week anywhere on the island that you recommend?
Then one more question....if you were a 10, 13, or 15 year old boy, what would be the number one activity/sight/place etc that you would want to do/see to really make your week there memorable?
thanks for your help, ideas and opinions!!
