I'm pretty sure it's up in Pamlico County (If it is the right Goose Creek he's talking about, because there's a Goose Creek in SC too)

I have never done much salt water fishing, im a bass man. What kind of tackle would i fish with, like i know they make the gulp for salt water and ive heard its good stuff but do you just beat the banks with it or what?

Not a lot of options for camping around the area as far as I know.
I looked into it for someone else and found these..
www.riversedgefamilycampground.com
or
www.bayrivercampground.com

there is also the Bayboro house in Bayboro, or assorted hotels in New Burn or Chocowinity.

We would like to know if you plan on fishing it. So please email us if you are interested and we can get you the entry forum in the next few weeks..
We will not turn anyone away the morning of but those who don’t enter pre-tourney are not guaranteed food or drinks afterwards.

If you have questions please let me know.

We had a great turn out yesterday at the N.C. DUCKS - MR BILL DUNCAN/WW SKEET SHOOT & OYSTER ROAST on Saturday 16th at Ash Creek Skeet Shooting Club out in Pender County, N.C. First Place was a $350 half day guide trip, second place shooter got a $125 duck call, and third place shooter got a SOLDIER'S Angel T-Shirt and Fishing Cap. Some great photos of Mr. Bill and the wounded warriors told of their experiences and everyone had a great time shooting and eating Stump Sound oysters.
Mr. Nash, he had me take out a Mr. Money from England, who was "De' Shooingest Gent'man" I'd ever did meet! ***Check out [Joe Guide YOU TUBE hunting Videos]***
