Look for speed traps, bbq joints, non-ethanol gas.

Don't look for trannies (unless that's your thing).



We're going to need some additional info to really answer your questions...

NC coast is long and differs vastly from Cape Fear to Cape Hatteras. What is your target location for NC?

THIS^^

Are you running the boat or trailering it?

Do you already have a place to stay?

Is your boat bottom painted? Or do you need a drystack? What size boat?

Are you coming to fish or just check out NC?

Look at the wind speed and direction. Do not get caught 40 miles out w a head to ride home.
Check all your connections, big fish up here.

    Post in the Carolina's section to get more responses.

    From Fayetteville, the southern coast is closest. Wilmington, Topsail, Oak Island.

    From fayettville, the further north you go up the coast the closer the ride to the gulfstream. I other words, you can get to Wilmington fastest by car but will have 60 miles to the stream while the car ride to hatteras would be a haul but the stream is only 20-25 miles. Generally speaking the inlets further south are nicer (deeper/calmer) and get progressively more challenging when you get up in the outerbanks. Quality of fishing from various ports depends on the time of year.

    I live in Fayetteville and fish with my neighbor. He has a 25’ Sea Fox and we generally trailer to Morehead to fish the stream. Fishing from Wilmington area is doable too.
