Fishing on Ocean Isle Beach

Fishing Charters and other ways to Fish during your next OIB Vacation

Ocean Isle Beach FishingJust imagine a bright sunny August morning as you and your family embark upon a fishing experience. The warm air mixed with the salt from the ocean racing by you as you watch the pure enjoyment on your family’s faces while the waves splash against the bow of the boat on your way to “the spot”. Fishing during the late summer months provides more than just open beaches and less crowds. It provides plenty of opportunities to make new and lasting memories with your family.

Offshore Gulf Stream waters offer opportunities to catch mahi, wahoo, tuna and billfish. Combine that with the ability to drop down to the bottom for such tasty fish as snapper, grouper, triggerfish and a fresh fish family feast will be in order. Closer to shore king and spanish mackerel are there to put a bend in your pole as well as the opportunity to tangle with multiple species of sharks. Another great nearshore fishery is artificial reef fishing for southern and summer flounder. Quite productive during the latter summer this reef fishing for one of the best tasting fish in the sea coincides with the open of the recreational season starting August 15th. Enjoy the thrill of the hunt and the satisfaction of the catch while casting off on one of the many Ocean Isle Beach charters available to you.

If the open sea is not for you, there are plenty of options to enjoy fishing the local inshore estuaries. The benefit of vacationing in Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach is the choice of the ocean or the inshore creeks and waterways that team with wildlife, wonderful views and some good fishing. Avoid the large waves of the open ocean and allow your inshore guide to treat you and your crew to a true fishing and boating experience.

If you are not up for casting off, stay on land and take advantage of the Ocean Isle ICW pier, located on the east end of the island on the Intracoastal Waterway. Cast from the shoreline or pier to see what species mother nature may offer a chance for on your day. Stop by a local tackle store and get the local “intel” and maybe some suggestions for tackle and bait that you may need. Don’t forget that maybe instead of fishing – your group may enjoy crabbing from shore as well. Crabbing can make for a great time and an amazing family meal! There are many rental homes on canals – you can head out your own backdoor and cast the net!

Late summer offers less crowds which leads to more opportunity to explore more fishing spots. Check out the available Ocean Isle Beach vacation rentals.
