OMC Fishing Adventures, Marker23 Inshore Adventures, and Atlantic Sportfishing all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Sneads Ferry.

The most popular fish species you can target are King Mackerel (Kingfish), Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and Wahoo. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Light Tackle, and Trolling. Nearshore fishing, offshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Sneads Ferry is a charming beach community with a long history of fishing. It boasts a vibrant inshore fishery and offers easy access to the deeper waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream. With this in mind, Sneads Ferry fishing charters offer different trips to suit everyone’s taste.

If you set out to explore the local inshore waters, you’ll likely fish for Red Drum, Flounder, Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, and Bluefish. These trips are a fantastic option when the weather doesn’t allow you to head further out. A half day trip will usually give you enough time to reel in some fish, making inshore fishing great for families with children.

Just a few miles off the beach, the list of targets starts expanding. On nearshore trolling trips, you’ll find King and Spanish Mackerel biting the end of your line. Alternatively, bottom fishing can be a great way to put some Black Seabass, Snapper, Grouper, Grunt, or Porgy in the cooler.

Experienced anglers, however, may want to hop on a full day trip and head into the Gulf Stream. These waters provide a migratory path for some of the most prestigious pelagics out there. Fishing here will take you after Marlin, Bluefin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more. Often, there’s also the option of deep dropping for Swordfish.

Local charter captains can often pick you up at Sneads Ferry Boating Access. You can also find charters by visiting one of the marinas in the area, such as New River Marina or Old Ferry Marina.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing with a licensed charter captain, you won’t need to worry about getting a fishing license. Otherwise, each angler aged 16 or older will require a North Carolina fishing license whether they’re fishing from a boat, shore, or pier.

January

During winter, big Bluefin Tuna are visiting the North Carolina coast, making this a great time to be targeting them. Closer to shore, bottom fishing can be very productive.

February

Inshore, you may find Red Drum biting the end of your line. Offshore, Bluefin Tuna are still making their way along the Gulf Stream.

March

Bottom fishing for Grouper and Snapper is a good way to put some dinner on the table at this time of the year. Offshore, you’ll start seeing Yellowfin Tuna, with Bluefin Tuna still going strong.

April

April usually marks the end of Bluefin season, only to be replaced by Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna. As the waters are warming up, you could be fishing for Wahoo and Bonito.

May

More pelagics start showing up during this period. Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, or Cobia can all be caught offshore. Reef fishing for Amberjack can also be a good option.

June

June marks the start of the Billfish season. Blue and White Marlin are migrating along the Gulf Stream so make sure to jump onto the action if you’re looking for a trophy. 

July

The offshore Billfish bite is still going strong with Sailfish showing up. Closer to shore, the waters are filled with Snapper, Grouper, and a variety of other table fare. 

August

This is one of the best times to go trolling for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and King Mackerel. Nearshore, you’ll often be hooking into Spanish Mackerel. Bottom fishing could get you some Black Seabass, Amberjack, and more

September

During this time, the Billfish bite is slowly starting to drop off. However, September is a great time to be fishing for Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, as well as King and Spanish Mackerel.

October

Inshore, the Red Drum bite should be heating up. If you’re going after Spanish and King Mackerel, they’ll usually be lurking a few miles from the coast. 

November

As the water temperature starts dropping, Bluefin Tuna will once again start migrating offshore. Wahoo are also still present in the area, as well as an assortment of bottom fish. 

December

As the winter hits, most offshore charters will be focusing on Bluefin Tuna. Nearshore, you’ll be targeting King Mackerel or bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper.

Captain John keeps meticulous records of where the fish are, and takes you right to them. We were fighting fish constantly all day long once we got to his spots off shore. The boat is swift and stable. It is well equipped with electronics and safety features. It is just about the right size for a party of two. Any more could get a little cramped unless some people are just sitting in the bow enjoying a sunny day at sea. FYI there is no head on the boat.

We had a great trip with OMC this morning. Captain John was very knowledgeable about the ocean and where we needed to go to catch some fish. I learned quite a bit about bait balls and what to look for in the ocean when I go out again. His first mate was very helpful and always handed off the pole to my daughters when a fish was hooked. My dad, daughters and I had a fantastic time! We just finished eating the king mackerel for dinner. Highly recommend!

My family and I had a great time. Very Nice boat with plenty of room for the six of us. It only took 45 minutes to get us out around 35 miles with the two 300 hp motors. We started of trolling and caught a few fish but we switched to bottom fishing and quickly started reeling then in. The captain put us right on top of them and we brought home 36 fish. We'll definitely be booking again with them next year.

Despite numerous rainy days prior to our trip, Captain John and Mate Parker took us to great fishing spots turning a potentially unsuccessful day into an awesome and exciting fishing trip. Snagged a Spinner Shark that got away but landed some Spanish Mackerel and Blue Fish. Thanks Captain John and Parker!

Capt John and Mate Tim worked their butts off getting us to fish, and with changing bait, changing trolling speed, and great conversation, all while catching King and Spanish Mackerel. It was a great day with great equipment and many laughs. Capt John gave us a tip for preparing the Mack! We got them into nuggets, made sure we removed any red portions, and wrapped w bacon. It was great! Thank again to John and Tim
