Wreck Fishing in Outer Banks

Known as the graveyard of the Atlantic, the nearshore waters of North Carolina are littered with defunct boats and other wrecks. These inanimate objects attract a wide range of fish, creating perfect fishing conditions. Step aboard an Outer Banks wreck fishing charter and watch this so-called graveyard come to life! Fight it out with exciting, beautiful, and delicious fish in the productive nearshore waters, and experience a thrill like never before. 

What to Expect

To reach the prime fishing grounds, you’ll want to take your charter from the central or lower OBX. Head out of Oregon, Hatteras, or Ocracoke Inlets and you’ll have the sweet spots at your mercy within minutes. Whether aboard a small center console or a powerful offshore sportfishing boat, you’ll speed off to the wrecks with one thing on your mind – fishing!
 
The beauty of fishing the Outer Banks’ wrecks is that you’ll get to utilize a range of different techniques. Troll as you head out to the wrecks and catch the bite of some Mackerel, before bottom fishing and jigging to fill the boat. You’ll go after a whole host of tough-fighting and tasty creatures. Test your strength against monster Amberjack, Groupers, Cobia, and Bluefish, while targeting Seabass, Triggerfish, and Spadefish will set you up with a treat to look forward to.
 
Most captains in the OBX offer a range of trips, fishing inshore or offshore as well as the wrecks. Despite this, you’ll get to choose between half day, three-quarter day, and full day trips to fish these nearshore waters. There’s something for everyone aboard an Outer Banks reef fishing charter. Beginners can test the waters on a four-hour trip, while avid anglers will get the most out of their fishing excursion with eight hours or more on the water.

How to Prepare

The fishing is good year round in the Outer Banks. Come during winter to have the waters all to yourself, or head out during summer to make the most of the weather and enjoy a smooth ride out.
 
Your experienced captain will set you up with everything you need for a productive day. Using the latest rods and reels, and with plenty of live bait, you’ll be ready to hook a range of fish aboard. 
 
The whole family is welcome aboard to experience the thrill of wreck fishing in the OBX. Pack your own drinks and snacks and make the most of your day out. Get ready to bring these waters to life aboard an Outer Banks wreck fishing charter!

I recommend live bait, and had success with that. Depending on the weather and water artificial bait may work better.

Keep in mind that summertime fishing at the Outer Banks is very hit or miss. Just have fun with whatever time you spend with friends and family while fishing, and look at anything you catch as a bonus to that experience.

May can be a hard month, weather wise. If Mother Nature allows, then you should put some fish in the box.
