Default drum around bear island/Swansboro

I entered my 5 YO into the CCA kids tournament next weekend 8/8. we will be trying to find some drum. I was thinking of looking in some of the deeper channels behind bear island or running up into queens creek. I have a 16 ft sea ark so we won't be making long runs or going into the inlet, etc. planning to take live bait and cast some popping corks. any tips much appreciated. I have fished the area but it has been a long time ago

Plan B-Hit the last creek on the left before you get to Brown's inlet. Coming from the red barn.
