Default Sun 27 Sep out of MHC / Bogue Inlet

Who is heading out?

We are gonna fish somewhere between the beach and 25 miles but havenít figured out the game plan yet. Probably a mid morning start....

Inshore on the kayak today was pretty good so Iím hopeful! Sojourn on 68

Lines in at noon out of Bogue and fished hard till 5:15 from 65 to 100í. Got skunked on the troll...I think it was just too pretty of a day Caught a ton of short sea bass (30+) when bottom bouncing and jigging. Think we lost a big grouper...No signs of life till then end of the day when we saw a pod of about 100 porpoises and a Sail on top. Crazy smooth by the end I the day and Ran in at 40 mph which is not normal for my boat in OB! Great day with the Fam so no complaints!

Still sounds like a great day!

Reviving this thread.
I just bought a place in Cape Carteret after having a place on Broad Creek for 30 years. Normally, would tow the boat to Morehead and launch there and head out through Beaufort Inlet but now I am considering using Bogue.
Just want to keep up with the channel shifts and any insight you folks who use this end of the island have. I used to fish with a buddy who used Bogue almost exclusively and remember all the switchbacks and near groundings I had with him navigating the exit. He loved to hit the "Alphabet" buoys for dolphin.
I may be hitting someone up for "follow the leader" trip out this spring.
Thanks in advance!

Itís not as bad as some people make it out to be. It certainly can be with an outgoing tide and a southwest wind you better be ready to take a beating. But as long as you read the water and are smart itís not terrible. Thereís a bar thatís pretty much formed across the entire entrance that at low tide can be about 5.5-6ft in some places. Last trip out in November was straight out once you get to the mouth. To close to the point and thereís a shoal. To far west the same. Some times if the tides low and anything over a 2-3ft swell youíll need to dodge some breaking or rolling waves as I call it. If we can match a trip up youíd be welcome to follow me out. Iím in Cape Carteret also.

Agree with Nick - can be sketchy but you will learn quickly what conditions to watch out for on the way out and on the way back in. Good to get a track on your machine but I find it equally important there to read the water carefully. Easy to fall in line with the fleet in the spring on a nice day.

Agree with everything Nick said. I live in Cedar Point along the ICW and run the inlet often -- but of course not often enough Just take your time and outgoing low--low tide can suck. I've waited it out before and especially when it was 0 dark thirty and I'm in a 27ft boat...also stuck it out there a many times. Come late April/May I'll be heading to the stream as much as I can (and can afford).

I live in Bogue and go out of Bogue inlet on the regular. Yes it can be rough but Iíve learned to check the Bogue inlet pier cam the night before and morning of prior to even launching. This has saved me many of times. Take your time and get a good track going out and you will be fine! Iím looking forward to this May for sure!

Much appreciated. I have a little Henry 0 170 I will be running inside and a Wellcraft 250 Sportsman I take offshore. Neighborhood has a little community ramp for the small boat but will need some other place for the big boat. Few projects left on the Admiral's punch list but hope to get out in time to chase the Bonito.

Sounds like you may be close to me. I only know 2 community's besides old cape carteret that have ramps. You gotta be close!

New house is very close to Angie's cafť if that gives you a good reference point.

Striper, I run out of Bogue pretty often, albeit not in a 25'. I have a 206 Sea Fox. As some have said, outgoing tide with a southerly wind can be dicey at times, but you gotta pic your days. The pier cam is super helpful....I've seen days where I've thrown my inshore equipment in the gunnels and bolted out the inlet because it was so flat when it was suppose to be worse and vice versa, days where I got the inlet and said NOPE! Definitely gotta read the water. Most of the time coming around the point from the CG station I'll stay damn near half way over to Bear Island.

Typically alot of guys on channel 68/69/71/72 running out of Bogue. Once April gets here, I'll probably start picking my days to head out for a little nearshore stuff. Also there's a Bogue Inlet Fishing NC group on Facebook that has a fair amount of guys on it that run out of Bogue. I'm sure you can catch me or any of them headed out. Not to many headed out the inlet this time of year, but that will change if we can ever get some consistent warm weather and get out of this monsoon season we seem to be in. Hail me down if you see me.....Red and White 206 Sea Fox with a red T-top on it.

Same as what others say. Read water, pick your days, and bogue pier cam is great resource. Generally early in the year I follow someone out. After that, I know the route and my tracks are down. Gets easier throughout the year to navigate. Bogue inlet fishing group on FB is good resource. Good luck.
