Heading to Avon NC - Cape Hatteras next week

Not a really a fishing vacation. Going with the family, will bring a fly rod and some spinning gear for my 7 year old. I have been poking around on the net and have not found much on shore fishing. For the little guy, advise on catching ANYTHING is good. I was thinking of bringing my 9wt 2-hander, which is ok for just about anything from shallow flats to surf fishing.
Saw some stuff on small drum in oregon inlet, bass on the ocean side. Is anything really running right now?

thx, JP

best bet, if you have large enough vehicle. Is rent a kayak for a day, take it a launch on the sound side. push back into creeks on incoming tides-look for reds.
Bring spinning rod.

Creeks

Do you mean creeks on the main land side or are there some that go into the barrier island side? No spinning rod for me. Jr will have one.
thanks, JP

you're not going to be paddling across the sound. The are not any "true" creeks on the barrier island side, but some ditches that show up on the map, that are called creeks.

Check google earth or googl maps, satellite view. It will help.

Report - some success

Back from Hatteras, got some good windsurfing in and about three hours of fishing. Fished the channel that runs from Avon north close to shore. Did a sunrise outing, shaired my spot with turtles and a huge otter. Like a small seal. I managed to hook an ocean pearch/scup looking thing and a few sea trout.

I was staying on a salt pond and there was an impressive worm hatch on two mornings, no fish on the worms though. The laughing gulls made a day of it. There were menhaden in the salt pond also, and on day one, I saw some flashes below the water, something eating the menhaden. That was a windsurf day, so I didn't fish them, never saw the flashes again. Maybe bluefish or Redfish ?

Saw some two foot wide sea turtles and a few big unidentified fish (not sharks, but maybe a four or five foot long creature) while windsurfing south of Hatteras island in the ocean side. Report of a six foot tiger shark caught from the same beach I was sailing from later in the week.

It seems that most Hatteras folks don't fish with artifical lures much, let alone fly fishing. Saw one guy throwing some flies in oregon inlet as we drove by coming in. Back to the new england board till next year.
