Anglers can embark on an inshore or coastal fishing trip of the Cape Fear region with a guided expedition provided by Carolina Explorer Fishing Charter. This local fishing charter business that’s based out of Carolina Beach, (and which is easy to reach with a locale that’s just off of US Highway 421), takes anglers to some of the best inland and just-offshore fishing holes in the area, to target some of Southern Carolina’s most prized, and tastiest, species.
There are effectively two types of charters that anglers can choose from, which each target a specific, but large, component of the Cape Fear region. The inshore charters head to the Intracoastal Waterway and the outlying saltmarshes and tidal creeks that are tucked behind Carolina Beach and the surrounding coastal towns. During these trips, anglers can catch red drum, speckled trout, sheepshead, and flounder, as well as other seasonal species. The Coastal Fishing Charters head up to 5 miles off the Carolina Beach coastline in search of Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, cobia, and false albacore, as well as drum, flounder, sea trout and black sea bass. Each of the two charters has its own allures for anglers, and patrons can expect to see some fantastic scenery, and reel in some big catches, along the way.
