Default Oregon inlet this Thursday?

What is the expert opinion on conditions at oregon inlet Thursday? Based on the forecast and tide.
As you probably guessed, I have never run that inlet before.

Wind looks good will be east so water should be clear easy to see bottom.

If you've never run Oregon Inlet before, follow someone else. Best too follow would be one of the charter boats. I run it in pitch dark, but I've been running it for years. Before I had good track lines I always followed someone, and even now if I haven't been out in a while I follow someone.

Absolutely great advice from cduster. Inlet can be a challenge on a good day.
How big is your boat? Last I looked it wasn't going to be great in the stream on Thursday but I have not looked yet today. I plan to try Friday / Saturday

I say its going to be a little bumpy Thursday for you. East wind 10-15 Tide shouldn't be much of a issue.

Unfortunately that's where most all fish are being caught right now, we need a north wind to push them down. Ocean City has been on fire this week.

Too rough for my little boat. 4' @ 6 seconds is too much plus the inlets. Guess this week of vacation is a bust. We came up here for a chance at a yft as they have been nonexistent at home the past 10 years.
Sucks that all the good charters are 2k

Vettnman- Had 3 sailfish chase us yesterday. Fished in 85 degree water all day. Not many billfish out there. They should be coming down here just in time for the Pirates Cove tournament. Worth giving it a try but only scattered catches. In the captains North / East tournament, high release was 2.
Not impossible but hard right now.
Good luck

Yeah, I know. It's still early but it's the next bite to start. Lot of hot water this year though. I'm in the process of getting radar and a new top on the boat right now, then I'll probably make a trip out of Beaufort for some high speed wahoo trolling and bottom bouncing then back to OI before the yft show back up in oct
