Angling the Inner Banks
This book is written to give the reader who is entirely new to fishing, or an experienced fisherman who is new to the region, a basic primer for fishing the waters of the Inner Banks. Because of its unique physical environment it presents a special set of challenges, as well as opportunities for recreational fishermen.
Fishing the Inner Banks is less celebrated than other more well known fisheries on the east coast. Its mystique is both indefinable and alluring, and its features are comparatively understated. Hook and line fishing prospects are abundant, but success does not necessarily correlate with conformity to well know convention. Low magnitude tidal forces, the infrequency of well defined channels, and rapidly fluctuating salinity create seemingly erratic conditions when compared to the predictable rhythms seen in the tidewater regions of the middle and southeast Atlantic coast.
