I am going to the outerbanks the second week of may. I'm gonna take the boat and i was wondering what fish I should be targeting. I've never been there before so I'm not sure what is in. I'm gonna fish the ocean but I might fish the sound as well if it's worth it. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.

I know you can bang up the AJ's in May down there. But theres a ton of other stuff to catch too. I'd check the local reports on the net or call on of the tackle stores down there ahead of time.

i go there every year red drum you can get right off the beach may/june is the best time for them you can also go just a few miles off the beach and get into the bigger ones also mahi mahi tons of them like 20 miles off the beach it was voted last year best place to fish for them. also you can go out for trigger fish they are really really good eating if you like seabass its better than that :D hope that was helpfull to you

If the water gets warm enough then cobia should be around,me and a few buddies caught a huge one right in the inlet back when we were in HS on a weekend trip in late may

Off both Hatteras and Oregon Inlet in May you will catch Yellowfins, Mahi, Blue Marlin, and Wahoo offshore. Leaving from Oregon Inlet, you only have to run about 35 to 38 miles before you hit the Gulf Stream. The Pirates Cove fleet leaves at 5:30 a.m. and you can follow them out.

What size boat and what inlet?
i have a 19 foot boat. i wil be going out of oregon inlet. we are staying just outside of corolla. there is a marina a couple minutes away that i can put the boat into the sound also. not really sure on the water depth there. on the charts it looks a little shallow.
