I have a question for any of that fish or have fished the Outer Banks. I will be down that way in June for vacation and we will be staying in a cottage on the Ocean so I figure I might as well get a little fishing in while I am there. The place we are staying at can furnish fishing gear but I don't like using gear that isn't mine because you never know what condition it is in. I want to make sure the setup I use now will suffice. Here's what I use now.
C Maxx 11' medium-heavy action rod
C Maxx 80 series reel ( capable of 32#'s of drag, spooled with 300 yds of 80# Power Pro Plus )
Andes Monster Yellow Mono for leaders ( 30# mono, 18"- 48" leaders )
Gama 6/0 to 10/0 circle hooks
4 oz no roll sinkers to hold it all to the bottom
So what do you think? Will this set up work, or do you feel I need to change some things.
I am gathering info now from the DNR down there on rules and regulations as well as to what species of fish are in the waters and their habits and traits. I want to be prepared when I get there so I can get the lines in the water by days end. Thanks for any help and input.
