There is a ledge and a couple humps in that area and it is about 2 miles from NW places. If you are going to troll that area I would zig zag the ledge and humps looking for bait in the water column. When trolling, I would consider NW places and Big/Little 10 generally one big area. I'm assuming you are targeting kings...

Targeting kings, mahi, anything else that might happen by. Have fished northwest place want to venture on out to B10 L10. This will be my 2nd summer fishing saltwater. Also looking at 240 Rock as a possibility.

I agree that NWP B10/L10 is one large area. I fished it extensively when I was getting started. I would troll and every time I would see good bottom structure and bait I would mark it. Over time my map revealed that it appears to be a ridge of structure that runs North to South/Southeast from NWP to Big 10 that is about 5 miles long.

I find it very interesting that to get to North West Places, you have to head south east out of Beaufort Inlet!

Just saying!

Stop it!! LOL

I grew up in Wilmington and spent most of my beach time at Wrightsville. There when you look at the ocean you are looking east, as it should be on the east coast.

Not in Carteret County.

Thank God I learned the diamond pattern on the CALO lighthouse, black north south, white east west. After twenty years I still have to orient myself.

Now explain to me why North River is south of South River.

Why stop at Big 10/Little 10? You aren't going to have cell service there so it's not much different than pushing on further. Big 10/Little 10 fishing isn't going to be much different than NWP unless it's late fall and the temps push the Kings off of NWP to Big 10/Little 10 and that's typically only a day or two.

Are there still kings out there this time of year. Thought they were long gone?

^They are long gone. Depending on the day you may find them in at the 240 rock or some of the deep stuff on the east side. But that all depends on what the water is doing that day

Here's what Big/Little 10 looks like structure wise there is also a rock (NWP 4) 335m 1.8 miles from Little 10. These shots are from my Navionics Plat + charts using Relief Shading incorporated from Garmin G3 Vision charts of the same area.

Thanks, BWP. I have fished those rocks hundreds of times but never knew how they actually looked. Most paper charts don't give this much detail. Big 10 looks very similar to how I imagined it.
I will have to look into those mappings systems for GPS.
Are these viewable on your desktop or is this a screenshot from your GPS?

Yes .... you can download the Navionics Chart App to your cell phone Android or Apple pretty slick. U have to buy a chart subscription for the area you fish.

Because you run north to get to the head of north river. You run south to get to the head of south river.
