When you are planning a fall vacation filled with fishing, there is no better place to come than to Emerald Isle, NC. When the weather cools and the rest of the world forgets about summer, you can be on the water, enjoying the serenity and peace that only fishing can bring. It might come when you cast your first line and patiently wait on that tug of life. Or perhaps just taking in the fresh ocean air will allow all the stresses of life slip to away. Let us help you build your angling adventure with these tips and suggestions.
Unforgettable Fishing Spots
Emerald Isle, NC., is full of incredible fishing spots that are sure to make every angler’s wishes come true. In the fall, the waters of the Crystal Coast are teeming with black drum, which often weigh in at nearly a hundred pounds. Whether you want to go for your biggest catch to date, or simply want to enjoy a leisurely fishing trip this fall, you can find what you are looking for at one of the many premier fishing spots on the Crystal Coast.
Pier fishing is a great place to start for beginning fishermen. The water depths surrounding these structures attract a large range of species, from wahoo to red drum and more. The Bogue Inlet Pier has been a local icon for 56 years and is the perfect place to cast your line. This fishing spot opens in March and closes at the end of November. To maximize your fishing time, there is a bait and tackle store with snacks, drinks & beach items right there on the property, no need to leave!
Other Rare Finds
Fort Macon State Park is a must-see that incorporates not only a fishing hot spot but a valuable Civil War history lesson. The fish are quite abundant in the inlet and the ocean. You can find bluefish, sea mullet, gray trout and various other fish species. After a great day near the water, you can enjoy the picnic facilities in the park. They include outdoor grills, picnic tables, shelters and restrooms.
If you are looking for a change of scenery and want to try something new, consider surf fishing. This variant brings you right to the water’s edge, catching fish by wading in the surf or standing on the beach. The best time to fish is early morning, when the light is low and the fish are ready to feed near to the shore. Grab your poles and get ready.
