Atmosphere

Lookout is actually part of the North Carolina Park service. There are plenty of places to camp, and a long stretch of beach to travel. Cape lookout has some of the most epics spots. Also is a very good place to fish. On the sound side of the island there is plenty of room to skurf, or wakeboard. Most definitly is worth the day trip, or better yet you can stay and camp for weeks.

- I'm totally agreeing witht the other comment. Lookout is just about as sketchballs as you can get. deep water, shallow sandbar, huge horse flies, HUGE SHARKS, check thist out...http://www.thehulltruth.com/attachments/sportfishing-forum/97448d1263662749-cape-lookout-shark-great-white-att1929818.jpg

that was caught right on the shoals of Cape Lookout.

Sharks - Without a doubt the highest concentration of large sharks of any beach on the east coast. The only reason for few bites is the lack of people in the water. Cool place but very very sketchy. 3 Great Whites seen this year by commercial fishermen.
