Fishing in Morehead City

Morehead City fishing charters make their presence known as soon as you enter the city and pass by a sign welcoming you to this “Fisherman’s Paradise.” The local charter fleet is made up of world-class vessels, known for their success in chasing down trophy gamefish. This reputation draws in anglers from all over the globe – especially those eager to participate in the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament!

Trophy Marlin isn’t the only target in these waters. The Newport Marshes are a popular spot for Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, while Radio Island is rich with anything from Sheepshead to Sharks. Head to the nearshore reefs for exciting battles with the likes of Cobia, Barracuda, and Amberjack or go into the Gulf Stream. Here, you’ll target Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, as well as the local celebrities – Blue and White Marlin.

Well-positioned and accessible from Highway 70, Radio Island is ideal for anglers looking for a quick taste of the inshore fishery. The nearshore reefs and wrecks, where you can both fill your cooler and experience thrilling battles, are the perfect destination for extended half day trips. Full day packages are, of course, best spent in the Gulf Stream – one of the most likely places you can expect to hook a “Grander”!

The pier on the northmost side of Radio Island is the main departure point for most boats and is the best place to start your search for a vessel to suit all your needs. The pier itself is 575 feet long and has lots of parking space and other amenities for anglers planning to stick around for longer periods of time.
 

Rules & Regulations

Traveling with a licensed charter captain means you won’t need to worry about getting a fishing license. It’s also strongly recommended if you’re planning a Billfishing trip from Morehead City.

Morehead City Fishing Seasons

January

Taking it slow is the key when it comes to inshore fishing in winter. The colder temperatures make for sluggish Trout — keep that in mind when fishing the marshes.

February

February is a bit of a slow period for offshore fishing, so it might be best to stick to the backcountry. Sight casting for Redfish is always a good way to test your skill.

March

It’s time for some very hungry Black Seabass, and while you can hook them with almost anything, it might be best to stick to squid or clams.

April

Yellowfin Tuna is the catch of the month, but strong winds can be very problematic if you’re not on a big boat. 25-knot winds are nothing to scoff at.

May

May is the best time to catch Cobia, without exception. Go to your nearshore wreck of choice and you might hook a 70-pound Cobia before you know it.

June

Mahi Mahi are very likely to be found near ledges and wrecks of around 10 miles out, and are a tempting target if you’re up for some trolling action.

July

If you’re a tournament kind of person, why not go ahead and sign up for a Billfish tournament? The prime target is usually Sailfish, but expect some Blue and White Marlin as well.

August

Usually a good time for catching Spanish Mackerel nearshore, take a trip to the eastern side of Cape Lookout and prepare some big Mullet as bait.

September

It’s still a great time to be going offshore after Marlin. Areas like the Swansboro Hole and Big Rock should be your main targets during late fall.

October

The Redfish bite is bound to be absolutely blazing, especially near the rock jetty at Radio Island. It’s a great time to be fishing from the surf.

November

Fishing the AR-315 could prove very rewarding if you’re looking for bottom feeders such as Flounder. Otherwise, Trout fishing is more than productive this time of year.

December

Bluefin and Blackfin Tuna are present in the Gulf Stream, where they are due to spend the winter months. Stock up on Ballyhoo and go get ‘em.
