Morehead City, N.C.
A Perfect Blend of Fresh and Salt
I asked a Redfish Cup veteran where he might retire, and it took him about two seconds to answer: "Morehead City, N.C." Hard to argue the choice. For starters, some of the biggest redfish in the world roll around the ocean surf here in the fall. Offshore, you can catch dolphin, tuna, even marlin. Inshore fishing for reds, seatrout, and other species is fairly consistent in most seasons. And as soon as you head inland, you're smack dab in prime bass country. There's certainly a tourist ebb and flow that impacts the lifestyle here, but it's hard to find a better all-year-and-all-season environment with this much diversity and appeal.
