Fishing on Cape Lookout National Seashore Professional Review and Guide

"Surf fishing is legendary at North and South Core Banks. Every spring and fall hordes of anglers junket to Cape Lookout National Seashore with vehicles, gear, friends, and high hopes in tow. In these seasons, fishing is more than a sport, it’s an event and a celebration.

Surf fishing may reign supreme at Cape Lookout National Seashore, but inshore fishing in the waters around the seashore is widely renowned as well. Guides in the nearby communities take trips to the inshore waters regularly, and anyone with a boat or a set of waders can fish the sound shores of the seashore. Cape Lookout National Seashore does not have any facilities offering offshore trips, but nearby Morehead City and Atlantic Beach do."

Location - beautiful. Fishing - wonderful. Remoteness - excellent. MOSQUITOES - MISERABLE! would have been a five star rating if not for mosquitoes. Calico Jacks Ferry service is recommended to transport your people to the island. Water & Shower available from 9:00 to 5:00 at lighthouse during the open season.
