My old favorite spot down there was around Oregon Inlet at the small boat ramps.If you get there before the crowds, you can often scratch out some bait. Unless they have fixed the ramp in the last twenty-five years, though, watch your cast net.I lost one there some years ago on a deep snag.
Better to BUY SOME, and then,as you fish, try to catch bait fish,etc, to flesh out your stock of bait.
PS With the rain we have had so much of, the flies up here in Va.Beach are MURDER with any kind of west wind...Bring bug spray!

Will do, thanks BA! I hate those pesky biting flies. I loaded up on some 25% spray and squirt bottles of 100% deet. I'm familiar with the ramp, ill try my hand in that area. We plan on doing mostly shore fishing, maybe hit the local piers.
I'm partial to Rodanthe Pier, because I'm part owner. We have been seing Tarpon on a regular basis. An 84 inch hammerhead shark was landed Monday. Two weeks ago we put two King Makeral, and a 44 pound Jack Cravel on the pier. We've had a good mix of spot, croaker, sea mullet, Bluefish, spanish makeral, pompano, and flonder as well. Come check us out if you get a chance. As far as fresh bait goes, I would try Hatteras Jack's.
