Bait a Hook in Onslow County

Those lucky enough to call Eastern North Carolina home know that the most wonderful time of the year is upon us: fishing season. Locals and visitors alike certainly won’t be fishing for an opportunity to cast a line. The coastal community of Onslow County offers opportunities for recreational, sport, and commercial fishing.

Sea View Fishing Pier

 Located in Topsail Beach, The Sea View Fishing Pier is one of the longest fishing piers on the NC Coast stretching over 1,000 feet. The pier caters to anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable time. The Sea View Fishing Pier has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Additionally, the restaurant offers a unique service to guests by cleaning and cooking any fish you may catch while on the pier!

Chartered Boats 

If your preferred fishing method is to get out on the open water, there are plenty of options to venture out on a charter boat. Most charter boat services are available year-round, provide all of the supplies needed to have an enjoyable day of fishing, and other amenities.

Adventure Around Hammocks Beach & Bear Island

 If you’re up for an adventure, rent a kayak and explore the natural habitat of Bear Island, one of our most unspoiled beaches. Nothing is more relaxing than casting a line off the side of your kayak to reel them in easy on a hot summer day. Enjoy the natural wildlife and variety of beautiful paddle routes around Hammocks Beach State Park off the coast of Swansboro.
