Have a chance to wet a hook during this time, Carolina/Kure Beaches and Ft. Fisher. I have never fished during this time frame, wondering opinions from the experts...even if bites are slow is it possible to catch something, then and there?

I'm planning to jetty fish during this time period for Tautog. You should do some research because they seem like a cool fish and if the weather is right they'll be up on the rocks and concrete during January and February.

Best bet that time of year is specks and puppy drum from the surf, casting artificials. Hot spots are around jetties and other structure in the surf. Though don't look past good holes, sloughs, or bars either. Weapons of choice are mirrolure 52m's and 18mr's. As well as 3/8-1/2 oz jig heads with your choice of soft plastic. Fishing cut bait will produce lots of small sharks and skates.

Have seen some nice Virginia mullet at Wrightsville Beach surf caught after first of year....the big ones show up this time of year when it getting real cold...many have put up the gear by then.
