The most popular fish species you can target are Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel (Kingfish), and Cobia. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, trolling, and heavy tackle. Nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and offshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

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.

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!

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.

We took a 5-9 pm cruise around the Atlantic beach/Moorehead area and caught a lot of Mackrel and a couple Blue Fish. Sam is an amazing captain!!! Josh did a great job teaching us how to fish and keeping our poles going. My 14 yr old had a wonderful time and so did the rest of us!! Thank you for a great ending of our vacation!! We will come back and get Reelax again.

Fished with Captin Will this morning. We had a great time. He worked hard to put us on some fish, was very knowledgeable of the fishery and history of the area. He was laid back and down to earth. You can tell he really enjoys what he does. Definitely one of the best guide experiences I've had.

Awesome day on the water with Cody and his mate. Had to downgrade from 8hr due to weather, but they were able to accommodate us to get some fishing in. Both are very knowledgeable, friendly, knew their craft. My kids had a blast catching bluefish. Would definitely go with them again!

This was our first trip taking the kids out and they loved it! The crew was so good, teaching them and answering their questions along the way! Our youngest was five, Doug made sure she was excited and let her catch the first fish. Hands down, awesome family experience! Book with them today, you won't be disappointed! 😁

Capt. Will was an awesome time to be with. Very laid back and easy going which made the whole charter. Great captain to choose if you have younger ones as his patience to teach and listen is top notch. The fish we caught was a bonus. He knew the area like the back of his hand and had cool stories to tell. He put us on them! The family and I had a nice dinner that same evening with some delicious redfish we caught. We will definitely be booking again when we’re back in the area! Thank you!

We booked a 6 Hour trip for 4 adults with Reel Time Charters and was quite impressed. Captain Cody kept us on the fish for the duration of the trip. Boat was adequate and we had plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Great trip and would not hesitate to book with them again next time we are in the area.

We had our best fishing charter yet with these guys! Very informative on the area and put us on the fish quick! We had great day out on the water! Didn't catch any shark on the trip but the Spanish Mackerel kept us busy biting nonstop! My 12 year old son and I had the best time! Highly recommend!

We had the best time with Sam and Josh! It was early in the morning and my kids were way more quiet than usual, but we all had a great time and we caught a bunch of fish! I loved their professionalism and how they made the effort to talk to all of us and make us feel comfortable. We are already planning our next trip.
