World-class Fishing on the Outer Banks
Ocracoke Island has the best fishing on the Outer Banks. Miles of undeveloped shoreline allow for endless surf fishing options and the nearby Gulf Steam has world-renowned offshore charter fishing. The waters off of Ocracoke are known for having ample big game species of fish. In addition to fishing, guests often see dolphins and sea turtles.
Hook All-Kinds of Different Fish
On the Outer Banks, you fish for yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi, sailfish, red fish, and white marlin. Lucky offshore anglers might even hook a blue marlin. Fishing on Ocracoke Island connects you to the ocean and the community. Every vacation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina should include some time spent fishing.
