Default Offshore fishing Atlantic Area

Has anyone made the drive up to Atlantic from the Morehead area to fish out of that inlet? I would imagine there are less boats up there so maybe the fishing is better? Just curious I haven't heard anyone talk about it.

The East side can be pretty busy from guys cutting across the shoals. We've had good luck there and we've been skunked.

If you get down near the Atlas tanker, it's crowded, because that's fairly close to the shoals. if you stay 10 miles or so further north, I don't see many boats out there. It's my preference for offshore fishing because I can get into 110' of water only 17 miles from the inlet. Fantastic bottom fishing and trolling alike out there. If you go in the fall sometimes there is no one out there at all...which I honestly don't like, would rather have some boats around for safety's sake.

The inlet doesn't look too bad from google earth, but I would be nervous trying to do it in the early morning light

Getting to the inlet is half your problem. Just take it slow and you will be fine. You need to run parallel to the south beach for over a half a mile before you turn into the waves. We bottomed out coming back in at low tide running the same track. Here is a satellite photo from June 26 you can see one boat's approach to the inlet

As stated above getting to the inlet is the tricky part. If you don't have someone to follow out use your cursor on Earth to get the GPS coordinates of the center of the deep water channels and plot a course up to and through the inlet and then put those waypoints in your machine.
