According to customer reviews, OMC Fishing Adventures, Atlantic Sportfishing, and Ofishal Charters L.L.C are some of the most popular fishing charters in New River. Full list of top fishing charters in New River.

Atlantic Sportfishing and Ofishal Charters L.L.C received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in New River.

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.

With so many different fish species to choose from, it’s no wonder that the New River in North Carolina has become a top destination for many anglers. New River Fishing guides offer trips where you can target a mix of freshwater and saltwater species without having to venture too far.

Depending on the location, you can target everything from Bluegill and Bass to Cobia and Kingfish. The upper portions of the river contain steady populations of freshwater species, such as Sunfish, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, and Catfish.

Down past Jacksonville, the river widens into the Stones Bay and eventually empties out into the Atlantic Ocean. This area holds large numbers of Cobia, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Drum. Due to its proximity to the ocean, guides can take you deep sea fishing for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Snapper, and Wahoo as well.

New River fishing guides offer half day, full day, and extended day trips, depending on how long you’d like to fish and how far you’d like to travel. Half day trips typically last four to five hours while full days will have you fishing for up to eight hours. Extended day trips will see you fishing far offshore, past the Gulf Stream, to chase big pelagic species, usually lasting anywhere from 10–12 hours.

There are several locations in Onslow County that offer excellent guide services for all skill levels. Some of these towns include Sneads Ferry and Topsail Beach. Since many of these guides are located right on the Atlantic Coast, you’ll have easy access to offshore waters as well as the bay and river. No matter where you go, a productive fishing trip is right around the corner!

Rules & Regulations

If you’re heading out on a saltwater charter, your fishing license will be covered for you. If you’re traveling with a freshwater guide, you’ll have to purchase a license separately before your trip. If you’re fishing alone and you’re over the age of 16, you’ll have to purchase a license regardless of whether you’re fishing in freshwater or saltwater.

January

January is a great time to go fishing in North Carolina because there are fewer people on the water. You can expect to target Bluefish, Black Drum, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout.

February

You can expect lots of the same results in February. Inshore, you’ll find solid numbers of Red and Black Drum, Bluefish, and Spotted Seatrout. Offshore, you can target Tuna and Amberjack.

March

Springtime is great for going offshore and catching Yellowfin Tuna. Hop on a saltwater charter that will take you to the Tuna grounds and enjoy a productive day of big game fishing!

April

Mahi Mahi make their debut in the offshore waters off the coast of Topsail Beach. You can also target Wahoo, Kingfish, and various Tuna species.

May

You can catch Cobia, Barracuda, and Bluefish anywhere from the coast to the bay. Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, and Red and Black Drum are also some of the likely catches this time of the year.

June

The summer debut features lots of exciting opportunities for both inshore and offshore fishing charters. Hit the Gulf Stream and chase Mahi Mahi or stay close to shore to target Redfish and Black Drum.

July

Summer is in full swing and so is the fishing. Offshore, you’ll find Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and Wahoo while inshore you’ll come across large numbers of Drum and Mackerel. Freshwater fishing for Redear and Bluegill will reap lots of awards.

August

August is a great time to head up the New River and target various freshwater species. Some of your targets include Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, and Redear.

September

If you’re in the mood for Flounder, now is the time to target this delicious fish. Fill up the bucket and have your catch cleaned and filleted for a delicious supper on the beach.

October

Seatrout, Flounder, Redfish, and Black Drum make up a large portion of the catches this time of year. The Tuna fall run kicks back into high gear as well, so if you’ve got a case of Tuna Fever, go offshore for some deep sea action!

November

The Tuna run continues well into November. Pick a charter that will take you deep dropping offshore and get that Tuna selfie!

December

December calls for great sight casting action in shallow waters. The main targets inshore are Redfish, Black Drum, and Spotted Seatrout. Offshore, you can hit the Gulf Stream to go after large Yellowfin Tuna.

Bro! Captain John and Mate Tim did a fantastic job of putting us on fish…we however fell a bit short of pulling in the big ones! Had a blast and caught enough “keepers” for a fish taco feast! Would absolutely go again and highly recommend them!

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!

It was our first deep sea fishing trip, and we loved fishing with Captain Joe and his first mate Randy! The boat was awesome, and they were great at coaching us on what to expect, and what to do on the boat. I would definitely go on another trip with them!

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

I've known Capt. Gudger for years and have taken my kids fishing with him a number of times. They know what they're doing and have always put us on fish. I couldn't recommend these guys more for the best fishing experience you can find. We look forward to many more Capt. Gudger! Clint, Taylor & Morgan

Great trip with Captain Joe and First Mate Zack. Captain Joe kept us on fish all day and First Mate Zack was busy unhooking fish and re-bating hooks. We got way more than we bargained for from our trip. Great Job Captain Joe and First Mate Zack. I would definitely fish with this crew again if I am back in this area. I highly recommend this crew if you are looking for a great day of fishing on the ocean.
