Nearshore

(Spanish Mackerel, Atlantic Bonito, King Mackerel, Cobia)

Water Depth: 45' - 150'

Moving from inshore fishing to nearshore fishing can sometimes be a scary thing, but leaving the confines of the backwaters and venturing out into the open ocean will be a decision you won’t regret.

Once you take that leap you’ll be amazed at what our coastal waters have to offer. Each time of year brings new life and opportunity, from casting into a feeding frenzy of Spanish Mackerel on a hot summer day to dragging groupers off the bottom on a chilly morning in October, our nearshore fishing has an abundance to offer.

Typically when we talk about nearshore fishing at the shop we’re referencing anywhere from .5 a mile to 20 miles. This diverse range in depth and water temperature provides home to a wide variety of fish.

Whether you want to troll for Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel or hit the bottom for Grouper, Snapper, and Sea Bass our nearshore fishery offers it all.

Having a group of guys here at the shop who were born and raised in the Wilmington area gives us the know-how to set you up with the right tackle and point you in the direction of the best fishing for that time of year.

Next time you’re at the shop mention nearshore fishing and you’ll be sure to hear all the tips and tactics for a successful day along the Cape Fear coast!

Mate Services

As we all know the weather wants to be the best on the days that not everybody can go fishing. At Intracoastal Angler we want to help solve that problem. If you are shorthanded or just need a couple pointers on whatever type of fish you're targeting, we offer a mate service just for you. Our trusted group of local mates have an extensive knowledge of the area and expertise to help you effectively target any fish in the ocean. Our mates will do either half or full day trips depending on what you want to catch. Give us a call for pricing and availability, and don’t be short handed the next time the fish are biting!
