Booking a nearshore fishing charter will give you the first experience of what the open ocean has to offer. On this trip we will fish from right on the beach in shallow water behind the breakers chasing Spanish Mackerel, out to 10-12 miles sometimes to catch a close King Mackerel, or even the rare late summer nearshore Sailfish! We employ use of a variety of fishing methods in this area due to the high variation of fish that inhabit this area. We use the trolling method to target Spanish and King Mackerel, as well as some light tackle casting methods to target the Spanish. In the early spring, one of the first signs of fishing season picking up is the influx of Bonito in this area. Anglers love coming down for a chance at the fun catching these small but strong fighters on light tackle.

We also employ the use of bottom fishing methods on our half day nearshore trips. The artificial reef presence around Wrightsville Beach offers premier bottom fishing for customers looking to catch Flounder, Red Drum, Sea Bass, Grunts, Beeliners, Groupers, as well as Sharks, and a plethora of other fish that inhabit nearshore bottom structure.
