Morehead City is a mecca for offshore big game sport fishing and inshore recreational fishing, and thus no shortage of fishing charters available in the area. Whether fishing for big game fish like tarpon, white marlin, blue marlin, or swordfish, waters near the warm gulf stream waters are easily reached from many destinations in Carteret County.
If your taste of fishing is more for small fish like dolphin, tuna, mahi mahi, redfish, and speckled trout, then Carteret County fishing charters offer great opportunities as well.
What makes the area so unique is the abundance of shipwrecks that dot the Crystal Coast which is a haven for small and large fish. Another factor is that the warm gulf stream waters are a mere 40-45 miles from Morehead City by boat making half day and full day charters possible.
It is impossible to talk about offshore fishing without mentioning the Big Rock Fishing Tournament that takes place each year which attracts fisherman from all over the world who vie for the largest allusive blue marlin and other sport fish. This tournament attracts over 150 boats from around the world, with many being local charter fishing boats and captains.
