The current redfish bite for the week of July 14, 2008, has been exciting, catching Redfish every charter, along with speckled trout and flounder. These inshore-guided charters are great for parents that want to introduce their sons or daughters to inshore fishing. If you love to fish but are having trouble locating or catching these fish, book a charter, with the Cape Fear Guide and you will have an enjoyable experience.

Carolina Beach fishing is just a way of life for a few of the local Captains that actually live here on the island, it is hard work, it allows us the opportunity to witness a lot of nature’s natural beauty and the changes that blend one season into the next.
