Fishing in Wilmington, NC and Island Beaches

No trip to the coast is complete without time spent fishing at the area’s fishing piers, drive-on beaches or by way of fishing charter. No matter your experience level, coastal Carolina fishing is fun for families and solo adventurers alike. Anglers' favorites include flounder, speckled trout, red drum, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, bluefish, pompano, gray trout, spot, croaker and whiting. Head out onto the waterways via a fishing charter, kayak or canoe, cast your line off one of the many fishing piers, sign up for a tournament or simply fish from the shore.
