Welcome to Carolina-Coastal-Fishing.com our new site for information on fishing the Coasts of the Carolina's. Carolina coastal fishing in the bountiful waters in North and South Carolina produce a haven for many sport anglers. Trophy catches of Red Drum and Bluefish, as well as Striper and Flounder are just a few of the huge fish that troll the beaches of NC, while SC sees similar fish, but Shark Tarpon and Sheepshead are seen more abundantly there.
Gulf Stream fishing off the Carolina's have always been a great place for the huge game to be found. Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna and Mahi Mahi are routinely caught throughout the year. The Carolina's have even become one of the most populated waters of Mahi in the Continental United States surpassing Florida in recent studies.
From the fabled Outer Banks of North Carolina, to the back waters of Charleston and Beaufort South Carolina our Coasts provide endless possibilities of great sport angling. Wreck Fishing is also abundant in the Carolina's. The Outer Banks alone hold over 100 Ship Wrecks.
I don't claim to be an expert, as I know I'm not the best angler in the world or my family. But I have a passion for helping others to learn and appreciate Sport Fishing on our Coasts. I love to share my knowledge with anyone that asks, and thats the reason for this site. I want to share my knowledge of our waters with visitors, and those interested in Carolina coastal fishing.
Every angler can learn something new every time on the water. All anglers have a flaw and that is only utilizing the tactics that are popular in your geographical area. A lot of times you can catch more fish by trying different tactics than your use to, or have been taught to use.
"That's the ways we do it, that's the way we've always done it mentality."I’ve learned on every trip I've been on the water. Whether it was just a simple hook difference, How to Set your Hook or how different species spawn I’ve tried to learn something to benefit me in the future, especially when I try fishing new waters.
How much information do you need to learn to throw a hook in the water?
Throwing a hook in the water is just a part of it. You need to increase your chances by selecting where to fish, and what to expect in that spot. What species, sizes, locations, and when to fish the areas can all be useful information for a great day of fishing. Learning what areas attract fish and why, as well as learning how they utilize the ocean to survive are key to successful fishing.
That's where we come in. Our guide to the Crolina's Coastal Fishing is designed for the complete newbie in mind, but we want to deliver information that is useful for the seasoned "expert". We want to start with the basics and build up our data to include more advanced angling and techniques.
With so many sites on the web who do I trust for great information?
Many angling "experts" try to get you into their site promising drastic changes in your fishing results and how many fish you put in the cooler or boat. While some changes in your fishing can result in huge positive changes in your success rate (like actually leaving your line in the water instead of constantly checking your hook that's an easy one!) most tactical shifts in fishing result in slight improvements in your landing percentages.
Improving on many flaws and techniques will help you become a successful angler. After all they didn't build Rome in a day, and it takes a lot of experience and practice to be an angler on TV. (Everyone's Dream Job!) Try some of these methods next time on the water and watch your success rate jump!
