I recently moved down to Durham, NC from the Boston area, and have been longing to get out to the coast to find some fish. Can anyone provide me with some decent options for surfcasting in the Wilmington/Cape Fear area? I am used to slinging eels and plugging for Stripers on Cape Cod and the Vineyard, but would love to just get out and catch anything really - Drum, False Albacore, etc. Is it possible to get into decent sized fish without a boat? Beach access? Tackle? What are my best bets for October-December in this area?

Many thanks!

I am sure they have some decent fishing in the Cape Fear surf but if you can make it up to the OBX from late November through January you should do fine with very nice sized stripers. Fish eels around Hatteras and Oregon inlets.

Paul,
Thanks for the response - I will do my best to get out to Hatteras sometime in the weeks ahead.
