Fishing the coast of North Carolina is one of the greatest in the world and that’s in part due to our salt water fishing holes and inshore fishing trips. Due to our mild climate and the varied coastal terrain of the ICW, the Southport area offers fantastic and exciting inshore fishing trip opportunities for anglers young and old. Due to the nature of inshore fishing travel time to the fishing spots is not that long, and provides for more time searching for flounder, red fish and speckled trout. So if you have a few hours free between shopping, plantation tours and dinner try an inshore fishing trip and create a memory to last a lifetime! Another fishing alternative is to charter a near shore fishing trip. Near shore fishing charter guides will bring guests to the deeper waters of the local area to explore fishing areas around underwater barriers, reefs and wrecks providing some of Southport, NC’s most exciting fishing trips.
