At the east end of Bogue Banks, the small town of Atlantic Beach punches well above its weight. Not only has it been listed as home to one of the best beaches in the whole country, it also boasts an incredible angling scene. Come fishing in Atlantic Beach, NC, and you can explore creeks and bays, nearshore reefs, and deep waters offshore.
 
As you should know, North Carolina’s bays and sounds are home to some of the most prized inshore fish in the US. Redfish, Bluefish, Black Drum, Seabass, Sheepshead, Trout, and Flounder all call the waters out of Atlantic Beach home at one time or another throughout the year. 
 
Head to the reefs just 15 miles out, and there’s an abundance of Jacks, Mackerel, Barracuda, Cobia, Grouper, and even Blackfin Tuna. You can also head offshore where the Big Rock, of legendary tournament fame, attracts some even bigger creatures. Target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Billfish, and try to land yourself a trophy catch!
 
With such a range of fishing opportunities on offer, it’s no surprise that there’s a charter to suit you. From a couple of hours on the bay to a few days offshore, there’s a variety of options to choose from. Beginner and pros alike are welcome to come and see what fishing in Atlantic Beach is all about. 
 

Rules & Regulations

January

The reefs are usually a great way to start the new fishing year in Atlantic Beach. Spots like AR-315 and AR-330 are hotbeds for Flatfish, so head out with a guide and get yourself a warming meal!

February

The conditions are still tough for heading offshore, but if you find a calm day there's the chance of landing a monster Yellowfin in the deep. Otherwise, the bays and reefs continue to yield great rewards. 

March

If you’re anywhere near Cape Lookout, make sure you’re prepped for some big Reds coming your way. The docks and pier areas should are a great place to fish for these beauties and their black cousins.

April

Hatteras Blues should be moving around near Cape Lookout at about this time. Stingsilvers and spoons are the weapons of choice, with the topwaters being useful for bigger specimens, so get ready for a boatful!

May

If you’ve been patiently waiting for Cobia to make an appearance, wait no more! Live eels or jigs should do the trick depending on your preferences, as you head to the reefs and get your fish on.

June

A summer hits Atlantic Beach, the fishing really hits its stride. Head out to the Gulf Stream for Marlin and Mahi Mahi, as you look to fill the coolers with plenty of action as well. Just don't forget to stock up on bait. 

July

Trolling the easternmost side of Cape Lookout is sure to result in plenty of Kingfish bites, while its cousin – Spanish Mackerel – provides plenty of action near the inlet, alonf with plenty of other prized creatures.

August

Peak season is in full flow in Atlantic Beach come August. Along with the Billfish bite offshore, delicious fish nearshore, and the usual suspects inshore, the Shrimp boat wrecks attract plenty of Sharks for real action. 

September

Summer's on its way out, but there's no end to the fishing. Attention shifts inshore, where Sheepshead can be found near most local bridges. Fill up on Crabs and Sea Urchins as bait, and land yourself some dinner.

October

The crowds have died down but there's no sign of the fishing going anywhere. Redfish return to centre stage inshore, with plenty of monsters biting at the end of your line. Meanwhile Wahoo will tempt you offshore.

November

Early winter is still a fantastic time for offshore fishing if you have the time and energy – and if the weather permits. Wahoo, Sailfish, and all sorts of Tuna are in store, with plenty of action inshore if the water is choppy.

December

Come winter, Redfish will be schooled up in the backcountry. Watch out for their tails just cutting through the water tops, as you go after meat and action in equal measure. See out the year in style!

Spanish Mackerel and Blue Fish are what you're going to catch in August. Atlantic Beach is a family friendly town with a laid-back feel. The men went fishing this morning while the women had a spa day. A small price to pay for a summer day on the water.

Take snacks and water. Only fish with the locals recommended because they are experienced and know where the fish are. If its early take a light wind breaker because it is a bit chilly in the morning.

Research and contact several charters and speak with them. I had a captain ask me why I didn't choose him and I explained why and he asked who I chose and when I told him he replied told me we would have a great time on Corbett's boat.

Had a good day with Captain Jon and Cody hunting the big fish which remained elusive due to the weird December weather. Regardless, Captain Jon and Cody put us on some fish and helped build family memories that will last a lifetime. I will definitely be calling again to boom a separate trip or trips. Thanks for the great trip.

Doing a little father son 1/2 day fishing trip and couldn’t be happier. Captain Scotty and Charles were very responsive to all messages and ready on the boat early ready to go. Great guys just to talk to and extremely polite. They put us on the fish and we both had a great time. We will definitely be booking these guys again! Thanks to you both for making a great memory for my son and myself!

The whole experience was amazing. First time for my girlfriend going fishing in salt water and they made sure she had a good time. We did really well on the first day and because weather conditions coming in, we decided to call it on the second day. They went above and beyond to get us on fish and make the experience a memorable one. Definitely will book again in the future.
