May can be fun lots of 1 to 3 pound blues --some schoolie bass around Oregon Inlet at dark and first light. Big reds could still be at Cape Point. If water temps are up in the upper 60's to low 70's the years first cobia should be swimming by as well as a great showing of blacktip sharks.
Best bet is going to be the smaller bluefish--lots of tackle shops like Frank and Frans in Avon, Red Drum in Buxton, Frisco Rod and Gun in Frisco and TW's in nags head all should have current info --not much fly info but info.

6 to 9 wts with sink tips and intermediate lines are the best--good selection of closers

Check out the "Dredge Slough" just before you get to Avon on the sound side. It starts at Little Kinnakeet Lifesaving Station 7 miles north of Avon and runs to Avon. It is a slough about 100 yards off the beach.
I do not know the rules about posting links --i am posting this one on the Dredge Slough --if they ain't allowed whoops!

Good luck and enjoy your time
