need fishing advice on the area

Hello, I am planning a trip to Carolina Beach in April. My intention is to relax and spend some time with my daughter who is a freshman at UNCW. My husband and son are avid fisherman (fresh and saltwater) and are coming along. Can anyone give us advice on the fishing in the area? Surf, pier, charters, river? Is fishing good in April? Any advice would be appreciated. THANKS!

Raleigh, North...

Hi Lori07Phila,

I can not advise on Charter as we have never experienced one, but there are fishing piers. My Husband actually likes to fish right on the beach. He normally goes out early in the morning before the crowd starts to come out.. or late in the evening after the crowds clears out. He has caught a little of everything even a baby shark and blow fish.. A fishing license is required, and may be requested to fish from the pier. There is also an inlet where fishing may be allowed. My hubby loves fishing at Carolina Beach, very laid back and relaxing. Here are a few sites I found that may help you out. Enjoy!!

I like fishing at the south end of the island near Ft Fisher. I believe you can still purchase the pass and drive out on the beach and fish.

I love surf fishing but if the want to fish in the brackish waters, they should find an experienced captain to take them. It is a great way to fish but alot more expensive.
