The marina is a little sketchy for boats drawing more than five feet, and the channel is narrow coming ( sailboats are advised to “hug the greens”), but the marina owners were very hospitable. They cooked up a big dinner of fried fish, hush puppies and fixins just for our club. They knew we were coming, of course. On the down side, the showers leave much to be desired and some of the boats along the outer dock had some polarity lights coming on because of some power issues. But all in all, we had a great one-night stay.

Hi Claiborne
We just arrived at Big Trout after calling Edna and Frank at home (they did not answer the Marina number, but it is very early in the season – March 14). Frank met us at the dock when we arrived at 6:30 PM and was very accommodating.
The Channel in was never less than 10 feet – we stayed about 30 feet off the green markers as one of the posters suggested.
Thanks for the recommendation – we found it in your book and then went to the website. We had planned to go to Manteo, but a 5 hour bridge closure yesterday at the Onslow bridge kept that from happening.

Hi Claiborne,
As you wisely suggested, I talked to Edna Summerlin, owner of the Big Trout Marina with her husband Frank. She assurred me that it was recently dredged, and I could expect 8-10 feet of water. We plan to be there on Tuesday, July 14. I’ll let you know what I find. It is a great place to go. Edna and Frank are most accommodating, and the food at their restaurant is superb down home cooking. We will be cruising in North Carolina for two weeks, with our southernmost point Cape Lookout Bight. Your book is our Bible in NC. Thanks for writing it and making it available.
Best regards,
