Default Question about surf fishing OBX

I'll be down in Nags Head next week, not bringing a boat, but planning on surf fishing. What is usually biting this time of year? Any recommended rigs/bait to use? Any advice is much appreciated.

Fishfiinder rig with cut bait and 2-hook bottom rig with fishbites/bloodworms if the water is dirty, if clear use sandfleas. Those two will catch about anything this time of year.

Check out TW's Tackle fishing reports - should give you a sense of what is biting. If the mullet are running along the surf, I like to use mullet rigs and fish with whole finger mullet especially if your cut bait is getting pinfished to death.

Gold and Silver Spoons can be really productive as well this time of year and cast far — good luck
