Did you get lost on the way to the Cape? How did you manage to turn that into a 50 mile run lol. Just messin, Sounds like a good time. The cape, and Shack are a blast.Took my 14' Lagoon Skiff Tail Chaser (Similar to a skimmer skiff 14... but better) 50 miles round trip from Beaufort to Cape lookout this weekend.
Agree with everybody else, there can be some great fishing on a skiff up there, and you can fish well away from the pressure, and boat traffic. Drake just delivered a tiller Nomad to Beaufort, there are skiffs up there you just have to look. My buddy uses a16x48 flat bottom jon around there to duck hunt, and fish the creeks. Just be prepared to hold your fillings in your teeth when you cross some of that open water in that rig.
