Kids Fishing

Some rental homes will have a dock on banks channel or lees cut and are an added bonus to be
considered when planning your vacation. Soundside at the Blockade Runner is the only resort accommodation that has docks that you are encouraged to fish and crab on. They rent rods and gear right there and can even have the chef cook your catch for you.

Carolina Runner Boat Tours and Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours both offer an easy-going boat ride
that young and old can enjoy. Boat tours offer a relaxed family friendly environment for kids to
catch their first fish and practice catch and releasing.


Offshore Fishing Charters

For more serious anglers, you may enjoy getting offshore and further from land to pursue larger fish and different species. It’s worth noting that charters should be planned well in advance and are dependent upon weather and wave conditions. Fish such as Spanish and King Mackerel, Mahi-mahi, and Grouper are some of the most popular targeted catches. We recommend getting ahold of Captain Will with https://www.deadtidesportfishing.com/to book your trip.

Captain Jot Owens is a native of Wrightsville Beach and has been fishing the waters of this area his entire life. Capt. Jot loves nothing more than to see a kid catching their first fish or pro’s catching their 1,000th fish. Andre Nel of Feel Good Fishing is another great angler and hosts a fun and encouraging action packed fishing experience.
