Shrimping? At least where I live you can cast net for them.....but really it's a pita unless shrimp are thick or in shallows behind Ocracoke (never had much luck). Most shrimp are caught via trawlers or hand pulled net behind a small boat. Scallops, hmmm further to the north like Va n up. Oh and deeper.
I agree with Flounderpounder....north end is best for no pun intended "Flounder". Along with the spanish mackeral running you might snag a King Mack or Yellow Fin tuna.(maybe) Also running ....if you fish closer to shore and back side of island are Spots, Croaker, Red Drum, Sea Mullet (good eating) Pompano .....Jack Cerval (off shore ..other side of breakers) Black Drum and Sheepshead. Clamming is another cool thing if you like clams. Low tide of course is best for that. Good Luck and Gratz on the wedding.
