Once you have your coastal recreational fishing license in hand, it’s time to start thinking about gear. Anglers will find tons of options when it comes to equipment for casting into the surf, from custom designed rods and reels at local tackle shops, to name brand varieties that are designed for multiple areas along the coastline. Here are just a few of the most popular gear options for surf fishermen. Keep in mind that there are endless options available, and your local bait and tackle store staff will be happy to point you in the right direction if you have any questions about what you’ll need for successful surf fishing in any given area along the North Carolina coastline.
VOTED BEST DECK DINING ON THE BEACH!
The spectacular view from Rundown Café’s newly renovated upstairs Hula bar deck is unrivaled on the beach. The restaurant offers seating on the deck, as well as more intimate seating inside either the upstairs bar or more family oriented downstairs dining room.
The restaurant offers full dinner and lunch menus. You can move on to order a big fat salad, a dish of Asian noodles, or one of their great lunch entrees like the Baja California fish tacos or a fried softshell sandwich. The dinner menu offers like appetizers and sandwiches, but throws in some bigger entrees like the Polynesian ginger chicken and the St. Martin Shrimp. If nothing else tickles your fancy, Rundown also offers a great selection of good old American cheeseburgers (great for a picky child!).
Rundown also offers a full bar that serves until the crowd dies down. Be sure to grab a cocktail after the beach and enjoy the absolutely beautiful ocean view from the new Hula bar deck. Nothing beats a delicious Mai Tai in your hand, a breath of fresh salty sea air, and a view of crashing Atlantic waves.
Rundown is a great place to bring your family after a long day at the beach, mini-golfing, or a Jockey’s Ridge adventure. The restaurant is completely family friendly, no matter where you sit. Be sure to check out the large koi fish swimming in the pond outside!
