There are many other popular ways to fish on the Outer Banks. Kayak fishing, bridge fishing, and spear fishing are all very popular and exciting ways to get out and enjoy the fishing environments here. Kayak fishing is predominantly a inter-coastal or sound side activity. The calmer waters ease stability for anglers. Often times kayak fishermen will frequent bridges near ocean inlets as it is a good mix of controllable water conditions and the presence of game fish. Spear fishing is best in the ocean, where open waters and shipwrecks create a habitat that attracts large fish. No matter what type of fishing you do on the Outer Banks you can be sure it's going to be great! A list of fishing bridges is found below.
