The Many Ways to Enjoy Emerald Isle Fishing

Surf Fishing

Surf fishing is a beloved tradition down here. There are a ton of great spots around town where you can bury your feet in the sand and cast your line in the water. All of Spinnaker’s Reach’s homes are near a private strip of beach along Coast Guard Road so you can start there if you’re hoping to enjoy a quiet surf fishing excursion. The Point is another popular spot. The currents near the westernmost tip of Emerald Isle make for ideal fishing conditions. Before you head out, be sure to get your North Carolina fishing license!

These skilled captains are more than happy to take you to their favorite spots and help you reel in the big one. You will likely need a North Carolina fishing license for these charters as well, so be sure to acquire on before heading out!

Visit Bogue Inlet Pier

The Bogue Inlet Pier is a favorite fishing spot for locals and visitors alike. It’s on the west side of the island and has been a part of Emerald Isle since 1957, though it’s been recently renovated. Once you take a trip to the pier, you’ll see exactly why fishing families have been coming here for their vacations for generations. You won’t need a North Carolina Coastal Recreational Fishing License if you fish at the pier, making it the perfect option for out-of-state guests. Even if you don’t choose to fish here, be sure to check out their fishing reports to find out what to expect during your day of fishing.
