Can be nasty and has a serious shoaling problem, leads to from major sport and commercial fishing grounds.
Oregon type bar in NC???...Naw, that sissy water in NC...
Which inlet is it? I heard mention in a conversation of a place in NC like you describe but don't remember the location. Just remember it surprised me cause I wasn't aware of anything like that in NC.
