Are there any BOC members familiar with the Cape Fear Coast? I'll be there the week of the 4th of July for a fishing vacation with the family. I know that we'll be close to the river but being unfamiliar with the area, I have some questions. How far upriver do I have to get to find good catfish fishing? Anyone know of names or locations of boat ramps and bank access in the area? Any idea where I might find some bait? The place that we're staying has a fishing pier on the ocean is there anything worth fishing for this time of year? My father has lived in MA most of his life and has never caught a true catfish (just bullheads). I'd really like to see him catch a nice blue, channel, or flathead. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
