Fishing in Bald Head Island

The Bald Head Island fishing scene is as versatile and exciting as can be! Blessed with access to both the Gulf stream and the depths of the Atlantic, the area offers trips that vary from beginner to pro level. 
 
There’s lots of fish to target here and the list can seem endless. What you catch depends on the fishing grounds you visit and how much time you spend on the water. On nearshore trips, you might catch Gag Grouper, Cobia, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Back Seabass, Bluefish, and Redfish. 
 
For those of you feeling more adventurous, book an offshore trip. These can last up to 15 hours and give you a shot at landing Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, Amberjack, and more.
 
Looking for an adventure closer to shore? Ask your guide to take you to the Frying Pan Shoals, famous for its hundreds of shipwrecks lying below the surface. These sunken structures have become a hotspot for Redfish and Bluefish. Rest assured you’ll be able to navigate the area safely aboard a modern vessel with an experienced captain.
 
The main way to reach Bald Head Island from the mainland is by ferry. Luckily, most fishing guides start their trips in Southport to save you the hassle. The island has had its share of storms in the past years, so take your guide’s advice seriously – if he thinks the weather will make the trip dangerous, it’s better to simply reschedule it.
 
Bald Head Island is the only spot in NC with a subtropical climate. Such a unique place can only offer a unique day of fishing. Explore it and have a trip of a lifetime!

Bald Head Island Fishing Seasons

January
Surprisingly, fishing in January on Bald Head Island is good. Visit the marshes for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum.
 
February
None of the local fish are at their peak in February, but fishing is still generally good. Shallow water around the island has a decent amount of Trout, Black Drum, and Redfish.
 
March
Inshore fishing is still the best option in cold months. There’s more Flounder in March, while Trout and Redfish are biting as usual.
 
April
As the weather gets warmer, you’ll notice more fish inshore. Target Black Drum, Redfish, and Trout.
 
May
Trout start their spawning season in May and put up a more aggressive fight. Nearshore fishing is starting to warm up, so try targeting Kingfish.
 
June
Come summer, the fishing is great everywhere. If you’re itching to get offshore, book a trip and target Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, or Wahoo.
 
July
July is a great time to take one of those 10-hour (or longer) trips and target Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and other big game fish.
 
August
Let’s not forget about nearshore fishing! Both King and Spanish Mackerel provide excellent sport and you can also go after Shark, Grouper, and more.
 
September
Go after Amberjack in September, while they are still present in huge numbers. You can also head out offshore for Sailfish and Wahoo.
 
October
Feeling competitive? Join the annual Bluefish Bonanza Tournament on the shoals. The surf zone is the place to be this month.
 
November
Kingfish still provide great nearshore action, but the main show is moving back inshore.
 
December
End the year with an amazing inshore trip, where you can target Redfish, Flounder, Trout, and Black Seabass.
