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.
Low key and deliciously relaxed, the Dolphin Oceanfront Motel is the place to go to enjoy long days on the beach in a wonderfully central setting that’s close to busy attractions and deserted shorelines alike. Perched on the borders of Nags Head and South Nags Head, and therefore minutes away from the attractions of Roanoke Island, the central Outer Banks, and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, vacationers will have a hard time deciding what to do and see first, but will also find plenty of ways to relax in the salt and sun at their own home away from home.
The motel has a nice suite of amenities including direct beach access, an outdoor pool with a wide sundeck for enjoying the rays, and a waterfront deck where the ocean views shine. There’s a central courtyard on-site with a picnic area, shaded tables, and grills, and guests will also be a couple minutes’ stroll away from iconic Jennette’s Pier. The individual rooms are nicely accommodating, with free Wi-Fi and cable, and are brightly decorated to take full advantage of the coastal atmosphere. A treasure of a retreat for beach lovers, the Dolphin Oceanfront Motel is a prime destination for both active OBX explorations and lazy beach days.
