super fish, you must be pointing to that soft spot in my heart....

@ Gnar and RobG, there are places that get extremely epic in this area of NC--you just need to know where to go and when. I'm sure you both know Crystal is not it, it's a kook magnet just like C-street (something to do with the web cams you think?). There are a handful of other better spots on Wrightsville and even more if you can hop in a car and get to them. I'm talking from the Brunswick County Beaches up to Topsail--no more than 45 minutes away from mid-town if you're not in traffic. Forget about Mase too, it's rarely good enough to warrant being elbow to elbow with 200 of your closest friends.
