See All Pine Knoll Shores Charters

Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina

Located on the Bogue Sound between Indian Beach and Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores takes on an identity of its own. The fishing areas here are shared by other local communities, but the culture and approach is all their own. You can pass through town on Hwy. 58. To the east, there is a bridge to Morehead City on the mainland. To the west, the passage crosses the Bogue Sound from Emerald Isle to Cape Carteret.

Here’s what makes Pine Knoll Shores special: For starters, you can visit the astounding North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores right on the edge of Bogue Sound. Some of the main attractions here include a “mountain to ocean” experience. Visitors can feel the refreshing spray of a mountain waterfall, watch as otters play, or even touch a stingray. If you are brave, you can look a shark in the eye or even explore a pirate shipwreck. Note: all the pirates are gone. A rare white sea turtle is one of the main residents along with hundreds of other aquatic animals and fishes.

There’s also the Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area that draws visitors for eco-tours that are hard to rival. Theodore Roosevelt State Natural Area is a 265-acre North Carolina state park in Carteret County. It stands as the barrier island’s only remaining maritime forest.

Golfers will be happy to know that the Crystal Coast Country Club is one of the top courses in the area. There are also public beaches and lots of nature trails for the whole family to not only enjoy, but take away as educational experiences.And fishing? There are plenty of options. From surf fishing on the beach to half day charters inshore and all the way to day-long adventures deep into the Atlantic Gulf Stream for big gamefish.

Several experienced charter services are available for inshore and offshore angling.

Pine Knoll Shores Inshore Fishing

You can start your fishing adventure here right off the beach of Pine Knoll Shores. Or charter an inland trip and take on flounder, redfish, Spanish or king mackerel and other species as the seasons change.

Many times you can catch fish right around the island, but often your trip will carry you across the Bogue to areas like Sanders Creek, Gales Creek and Broad Creek. Here you can fish around islands, points, rocky banks and areas that hold large numbers of fish. Redfish and speckled trout can be caught most of the year.

You can also access hundreds of other fishing points, as well as the Atlantic, at both ends of the island that serves as home to Pine Knoll Shores.

Pine Knoll Shores Offshore Fishing

When you hop aboard a Pine Knoll Shores charter and head offshore, there are choices that make it difficult to limit yourself to one day’s fishing. You can stay in closer to shore and catch good numbers of redfish, speckled trout, mackerel and bluefish.

Or you can be more adventurous and go out further. As a rule of thumb, the further you go out into the Gulf Stream’s warm waters, the better and bigger the fishing is. Popular species are tuna, Mahi Mahi, sailfish, wahoo, white marlin, amberjack, black drum, barracuda, pompano, mullet and lots more. Some folks even like to go shark fishing. If they swim in the Atlantic, there’s a good chance you can catch them here.

Charter captains use all kinds of techniques, from trolling to bottom fishing. Bottom fishing is especially productive for red snapper, grouper, triggerfish and sea bass. If you have a favorite type of fish or fishing style, make sure and discuss it with your charter captain. They will let you know what’s biting, when it’s best to come and where you’ll probably be going. The more prepared you are for the trip, the more fun you’ll have.

Book a Pine Knoll Shores Fishing Charter

There is a good chance that when you visit Pine Knoll Shores, you won’t have to go very far to find everything you need, from entertainment to the beach to fantastic fishing. This area is in the middle of one of the Atlantic Coast’s best fishing areas and you can take advantage of it almost any time of the year. Pick a type of fishing you like and find out what’s biting, but you’ll be ahead of the game if you book a charter with FishAnywhere. That way all you have to do is show up ready for action and your boat crew and captain will take care of everything else.
