Southport is a small city in Brunswick County, with an interesting claim to fame. Some time ago, it was a surprisingly popular filming spot for a variety of TV shows and movies. If you watched Dawson’s Creek back in the day, you’ve seen your share of Southport as well.

The city has a long-standing tradition of both recreational and commercial fishing, making Southport fishing a synonym for success! Its community has a profound love for the art of fishing – just check out places like the NC Maritime Museum and you’ll see it for yourself.

Known For

Thanks to its advantageous position, Southport is in an excellent place for inshore fishing. With the Intracoastal Waterway and Elizabeth River to the west, and Cape Fear River to the southeast, what more could anyone ask for? To top it off, you also have clear access to the Atlantic and a number of exciting pelagic species.

Inshore Fishing

The obvious first choice for anyone looking to fish inshore is the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) with its many sounds, inlets, and creeks. You can find pretty much all the local inshore species here, including Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout. On the other hand, if fishing the marshes is more your thing, head on down to Elizabeth River just south of the ICW.

Cape Fear River is a brackish fishery, with the part near Southport mostly consisting of Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Sheepshead. You’d need to go quite further upstream to find Stripers and other freshwater species. This river is mostly favored by anglers fishing from shore or the Southport Pier.

Offshore Fishing

If you’re in Southport during the summer season, then an offshore trip might just be the thing for you. The good thing about Southport offshore fishing is that you can get some great fishing done as close as 15–20 miles offshore. It may seem far if you’ve never been deep sea fishing, but the abundance of Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and Cobia will make it worthwhile.

The real adventure, however, is in the Gulf Stream, some 50 or so miles away from Southport. It’s where you’ll find numerous reefs holding huge bottom feeders as well as pelagics like Blue and White Marlin. Frying Pan Tower is one of the most popular offshore hotspots for fishing charters running out of Southport.

Southport Fishing Tips

  • Bait selection can be a big factor in your success. Redfish love minnows and freshly cut mullet, while Black Drum are more partial to shrimp. Pelagics will go nuts over ballyhoo when you’re trolling near the Gulf Stream.
     
  • One of the best ways to spend a hot summer evening is to go Flounder Gigging. Plenty of charter captains in Southport run gigging trips during the warmer months.

Need to Know

Fall is a great time to be fishing out of Southport if you can manage it. Not only will you dodge the summer crowds, but you’ll have prime fishing conditions to boot!

Regulations

Anyone fishing from a licensed fishing charter will have their fishing licenses taken care of by the charter captain. Another bonus of fishing with a licensed captain is that they’ll know everything about the standing size and bag limits, allowing you to focus on the fishing itself. Otherwise, you’ll need to buy a North Carolina saltwater fishing license for any angler older than 16.

Budget

There’s a lot of different boats and offers for inshore fishing in Southport, with prices for a half day trip spanning anywhere from $350 to $500 depending on the boat’s size and capacity. Prices for offshore trips are more uniform, with a 12-hour trip to the Gulf Stream costing around $1,500.

Getting There

You can reach Southport by car in two ways. If you’re coming from the north or west, you’ll want to take the NC 211, while those coming from the east should use the NC 133 (merging from the I-140 if necessary). Getting there is just the start, though. When you’re on the boat in the deep blue, reel in hand, that’s when the real adventure begins.

Enero

The very start of the year is probably the slowest time for fishing in Southport. You can still have some fun sight casting inshore for Reds and Specks.

Febrero

It’s still cold, but you can try your hand at offshore fishing if you’re feeling lucky. Mahi Mahi is the one you’re most likely to see, but there might be some Amberjack lurking around as well.

Marzo

The Flounder bite will be picking up in March as spring starts setting in, so you can count on better and better inshore fishing as the weeks go by.

Abril

Inshore fishing is picking up as more and more Speckled Trout, Black Seabass, Redfish, and Flounder start biting in the waters all around Southport.

Mayo

The offshore fishing season is about to start, and you can already catch great numbers of Mahi Mahi and Kingfish in the deeper waters a dozen miles out.

Junio

June offshore fishing in Southport is what it’s all about! Prepare for an unforgettable time fishing for the likes of Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Wahoo, and more!

Julio

The North Carolina Fourth of July Festival is held in Southport every year, so expect quite a crowd at the start of the month. Don’t let that stop you from fishing, though, because it’s absolutely on fire!

Agosto

The offshore action is still going strong, while the inshore waters are teeming with Redfish, Speckled Trout, and others. You win wherever you cast your line.

Septiembre

September brings with it the end of peak offshore fishing, so be sure to check out the deep blue bite while you still can. A good time for bottom fishing as well!

Octubre

Redfish are showing up in droves over at the ICW and Elizabeth River. Along with Black Drum, you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied in more shallow waters.

Noviembre

If you’re looking for Kingfish you’ll have a splendid time nearshore, but otherwise most anglers will prefer to spend the rest of the year inshore.

Diciembre

As winter fully sets in, the clear waters provide good opportunities all around for fly anglers and fans of sight casting in the marshland.

We had an exceptionally hot week but as BHI owners I can say that heat index over 100 is uncommon.

Take a charter or hire a captain to run your boat. You'll save a ton of money going with someone who knows the area.

Capt Josh and first mate Jamie were knowledgable and courteous. They took good care to make sure the two young boys - ages 11 and nine - had fun. The Captain worked hard to catch fish and we had a full day of fishing.

The bite was a little slow on the day of our trip. Capt Philips worked his rear-end off to make sure we found and caught fish. Very professional and friendly. Overall, a great day on the water. I will book again.

Nothing short of an amazing experience. The Captain and his partner were so kind, and fun. We enjoyed the fishing, but the conversation was great, as well. I highly recommend Fugitive Fishing! Also, as a highlight - we all caught sharks. My grandfather caught a shark that was over 5/6 feet. This is something he will always remember, and we as a family will treasure! Thank you, Fugitive Fishing!

This was a great trip. I gave it an overall a 4 because of weather NOT because of capt. He tried HARD, but it rained last night so the fish weren't cooperating. We will be going back before it gets too cold.

Had an excellent experience thanks to our doppelganger angler Jordan who happened to have the opposite name of the captain. Caught a lot of nice fish including a nice shark. I would recommend this charter to any angler looking to enjoy a fishing trip. We will definitely book again

Capt Josh and Jamie worked hard to put up in the fish but the north wind wouldn't cooperate. After trying all inshore reefs Capt Josh tried going offshore but turned around due to safety concerns with the rough seas. Josh was honest and gave us the option to shorten the trip or continue doing what we had been doing unsuccessfully for four hours. We opted to cut it short and save time and money. Will definitely look to Play Hooky Too on our next visit!

We had a great experience with Captain Josh and first mate Jamie. They were very friendly and knowledgeable not only about fishing but also the surrounding area. We caught Spanish mackerel very quick into the trip. I also had my five year old son with me and they did a fantastic job letting him be involved and making the experience fun for him. I would strongly recommend these guys
