Cape Lookout/

Bogue Inlet

Blowfish have been caught at the Bogue Inlet Pier, which is open for the season. The sea mullet run shouldn’t be too far off. A decent drum bite is at the Cape Lookout rock jetty, at Fort Macon and in Bogue Sound bays, marshes and oyster beds. Southern flounder are in those areas, too. Offshore, catches include yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, wahoo and dolphin. Contact: EJW Outdoors 252-247-4725; www. ncwaterman.com ; www.ncoif.com.
