In fact, the first day of fall is coming right up next week on September 22nd! Just because the summer season is over doesn't mean that fishing on the Crystal Coast comes to a halt. Fall fishing on the Crystal Coast can be fun and plentiful!  Read More

Inshore & Nearshore Fishing On The Crystal Coast

Chelsea Perry - Friday, August 18, 2017

Here are Mount Maker Charters, we've had some great charters in the past week or so full of lots of different species of fish. Last week, we have a variety of clients that were in search of many different types of fishing. And, luckily we were able to deliver.

For some of our trips, we started out nearshore fishing for Mackerel and then ventured inshore to do some flounder fishing. With mixed bag fishing, our fishermen (and fisher-women) get a chance to catch a lot of different fish. Not only is this good for eating, but it's fun! There's nothing like hearing that reel spinning when you've got a catch on the line - large or small.

Unfortunately, summer is coming to close, but that doesn't mean that the fishing stops with Mount Maker Charters. No matter what time of year it is, we make it our goal to put each and every charter on as many fish as possible. With our temperate climate and variety of bodies of water here in coastal North Carolina, we've got access to great fishing nearly all year round. If you live in eastern North Carolina or you're visiting one of our beautiful towns such as Beaufort, Emerald Isle, Morehead City or Atlantic Beach, come get a taste of North Carolina inshore fishing. Give us a call today to book your fishing charter!
