Surf fishing is one of the most popular ways to fish on the Outer Banks. Hundreds of miles of coastline make surf fishing accessible for most visitors here and the ocean cartography here creates the ideal environment for surf casters to catch many species of fish.
Looking for a guided Outer Banks fishing experience? There are hundreds charter boats in the area to choose from. Whether it be an inshore fishing adventure or deep sea fishing the Gulf Stream waters, the Outer Banks has the experts to get you to the big fish!
Pier fishing is very similar to surf fishing but you have the luxury of being out and on top of the fish you are trying to reach from shore. Pier fishing also gives you the opportunity to target larger fish who swim beyond the outer bar; where the shallower, sandy waters of the inshore end and open to much deeper ocean.
