A look at a map of the North Carolina coastline shows you how the state juts out into the Atlantic Ocean, meaning the Gulf Stream and lots of great offshore fishing await anglers in the know.
In fact, much of North Carolina’s coastline is closer to the Gulf Stream than anywhere in the United States north of Stuart, Florida which is extremely close to the Gulf Stream.
A wide variety of charter fishing operations makes it easy for you to get offshore in search of the big one. Because coastal North Carolina marks the spot where the cool Labrador Current collides with the warm waters of the Gulf Stream before it heads toward Europe, fish also converge from both directions throughout the year.
The long list of possibilities of fish out in the Gulf Stream and closer to the coast include: sailfish; blue and white marlin; dolphin; amberjack; bluefish; yellowfin, bluefin, and blackfin tuna; king and Spanish mackerel; wahoo; oceanic bonita; barracuda; false albacore; cobia; channel bass; sailfish; several shark species; and varied bottom fish like triggerfish, sea bass, tilefish and grouper.
Though spring to fall is most popular for offshore fishing, there are fish to be found out in the Atlantic year-round including the growing popularity of bluefin tuna come winter.
North Carolina has a long history of world-class offshore fishing dating back to at least the 1930s, when commercial fisherman out of fabled Hatteras Village started offering offshore fishing trips to visiting fishermen. Hatteras and the Outer Banks are just 15 or so miles from the Gulf Stream.
