BTW if no one has mentioned this yet, there is a big no-wake zone going through the ship's turning basin. Keep an eye out because if you speed through it, you will probably get fined. The signs are somewhat small, off to the side of the channel. If there is a lot of traffic it will be obvious where the no-wake zone is.

Understatement of the century. They have tough days (usually in season when they are just slammed) like everyone, but there's a reason they are full for lunch on a Wednesday in January. Consistently good experience and thus locals go all year.

This. If it's nice enough to go to the Cape on the outside, you'll be happy for the speed of the Kencraft.

If it's not, you'll thank yourself on the run thru Back Sound that you have something that is keeping you dry and can cut thru the chop, irrespective of wind direction.

It is NOT hard to stay in decent depth on the back side if you follow the channels and are not at a dead low lunar tide. If you have questions search on here for threads on back routes to the Cape--there are several.

That said I've been at the knuckle buoy in a skiff. But I was younger and stupid(er).

Enjoy.

Always have been happy with Sammys and Southern Salt and think it's great that you pretty much always see the owner, Sammy, in there working, now more so at Southern Salt than Sammys. They are also pretty much the option for food other than chains or fast food after about 9pm as they keep the kitchen open until the business stops. Tight Lines is also good and has a huge beer selection, we frequently eat there as well.

Someone mentioned Jack's, it's your typical loud nightlife type bar, usually has a band. Location and building are nice and has food truck/trailer outside with some options for late night food. Other nighttime spots would include Typsy Turtle on the causeway (never been), the Tackle Box in the circle, Beach Tavern (also has late night food, more of a bar and grill/sports bar type place with pool tables, across from the Pacific in Atlantic Beach).

MHC nightlight options begin and end with The Arendell Room.

Also, MHC docks across are a great combination with a stay at Bask. Nice clean, well kept facilities and big slips, like as in big enough for 50-60' sporties and large sailboats. Had to get towed back there one time and they are wide enough TowBoat was able to pull straight in with us in a side tow, so we had a 25 Carolina Classic and the TowBoat rhib side by side in the slip with a couple feet to spare.

Ok I so I just got my 2 Top Spot Charts. Looking at offshore trolling obviosoly Big Rock and 90-100 fathom tuna are going to hold Pelagic in April. Is it worth stoping at some of the ARs inside of Big Rock this time of year. I will check for SST charts prior to leaving to find the temp breaks but if the breaks are inside is it worth a stop?

Inshore looks like there a ton of optitions. So many not sure where to start. But I will keep studying the charts. Any help is appreciated.

inshore the haystacks are normally a pretty good bet, but to fish most of it I think you are going to need a boat that has a pretty shallow draft. during the colder months we have had quite a bit of success near radio island with specks. some of the AR's will hold BSB and some flounder as well.

What is the best landing to use on the AB side? We are staying just N of the DQ, the closer the better..

Also looking for a slip for a few days on the island-recommendations?

Thanks

I know there is a ramp by chasin tails but not sure if it is public or not and parking is very very limited. You may be able to get a slip at Crow's Nest Marina or Anchorage Marina. We use the ramp on radio island. Closest to the inlet.
