Fishing opportunities abound in the "Friendly City by the Sea." The question is…what type of fish do you want to catch? Flounder? Trout? King Mackerel or Red Drum? Whether you have access to a boat or prefer to fish from shore, fishing is a sport that can be enjoyed by 'kids' of all ages.

Boaters will enjoy the easy access of Casper's Marina. Located directly on the IntraCoastal Waterway in downtown Swansboro, Casper's Marina provides a wide variety of boating services. Gas up here before exploring the pristine waters surround Swansboro or a fun day of fishing.

And don't forget you can get a line wet right off the dock at Swansboro's Bicentennial Park…just don't get too distracted by the view!

Don't get caught with too many fish or ones that are too little...make sure you know the current size and creel limits. For more information call the NC Division of Marine Fisheries at (252) 726-7021 or (800) 682-2632.
