Caswell Beach, NC

Caswell Beach is the kind of town that you see in the movies or maybe in a colorful novel. It’s a sleepy little seaside town located near the mouth of the Cape Fear River about halfway between more well known areas like  Wilmington and Myrtle Beach.  It’s a slow-paced island living alongside the Atlantic Ocean in the southeastern part of North Carolina in Brunswick County.

But don’t let the laid-back town fool you. If you want some fast past action, you don’t look for a club or an amusement park. You grab a rod and reel and some bait. Or better yet, check out the many charter fishing opportunities up and down this part of the coast and hop aboard for the thrill ride of landing big fish and soaking in some of the most beautiful water in the country. This vacation paradise has had problems with beach erosion because when a hurricane comes through, there’s nothing to slow it down. But well planned preservation efforts around the Wilmington Harbor Channel Project have fortified the area significantly.

While fishing is a big attraction to this area, visitors can also enjoy the old Fort Caswell and the Oak Island Lighthouse. There is also the public Oak Island Golf Course. You can travel just a few miles in either direction up State Hwy. 87 and get to almost anything you would want in North Myrtle Beach.

Caswell Beach Inshore Fishing

The big draw to this area is offshore fishing because of the massive expansive of Atlantic Ocean waters. But there are inshore options as well. There are several great fishing spots along the edges of the intracoastal waterway for redfish and trout. At other times of the year, more big gamefish come into the canal and hit the many runouts, bays and shorelines.

The Molasses and Coward Creek areas flow off of the Elizabeth River and also offer spots such as the Boathouse Creek and Caswell Basin. There’s also the Cape Fear River with plenty of the same type of fishing. Good spots also include the areas around Battery Island and Striking Island.

The brackish water, especially further up the Cape Fear River, produce catches of largemouth bass, striped bass, catfish and numerous types of bream and sunfish.

The Bald Head Island Nature Area also has numerous creeks, basins and shoreline areas that are great for fishing. There are also numerous boat launches in the area for fishermen and women who have their own boat to get into the water.

Caswell Beach Offshore Fishing

Offshore options are numerous here. Anglers can stay close to shore and catch bluefish, pompano, cobia, king mackerel, speckled trout, redfish,  Spanish mackerel, mullet, sharks, and more.

Anglers can also go for all-day trips and get a little bit further out in the Atlantic to add fish like snapper, grouper, Mahi-Mahi, and several other big gamefish to their catches, depending on the season and the weather.

Going offshore is much more fun and productive with a charter because the captains know what is biting and how to catch fish. They can save you a lot of time, plus a lot of effort.  Most charter captains offer half day and full day trips, but there are some shorter trips if you don’t have as much time. Just remember, the more time you spend on the water the more you’ll have to take home to put on the grill for supper.

The big redfish, or red drum, are one of the favorites here. They can be caught by slowly trolling live baits and can also be caught on cut pieces of menhaden, mullet and bucktail jigs. One good technique in shallower areas is using a popping cork which makes a noise that attracts the fish to your bait.

Of course, like most places along the edge of the ocean, artificial reefs are also popular fishing spots. Here the Yaupon Reef is a go-to spot. Old shipwrecks provide excellent structure as well including the famous Hot Hole spot right off Caswell Beach. The “hot hole” often refers to how good the fishing is, but it was originally named that because the hot water from a large energy plant is discharged into the ocean there. It’s a baitfish magnet and well, you know what follows that.

There are several good fishing piers in the vicinity, including the 1,200 foot long Johnnie Mercer’s Pier in Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach Fishing Pier, and Kure Beach Fishing pier.
