NC Fishing License

Before you hit the water, don’t forget your NC Fishing License. Except for pier fishing, a license is required for all fishing in North Carolina. Piers are covered by an inclusive license, so you don’t need one to fish on a public fishing pier.

Fishing Reports

Local fishing reports are the best way to know what and where the fish are biting. One of the best reports is the NC Division of Marine Fisheries report. Also, don’t forget to check out the local reports for all the latest info. Good luck on the water!
