July 11, 2008, Red Fish and Flounder bite have been good this week just off the Cape Fear River, I have run three redfish charters catching fish every charter. North Carolina inshore fishing in the Cape Fear Region, in my opinion, is just as good as anywhere in the state. The Cape Fear River holds a tremendous amount of menhaden, finger mullet, and live shrimp which is a great food source for the inshore fish, flounder, trout, and redfish.

NC inshore fishing is becoming quite popular with many of today’s families for it is more reasonable in today’s economy to hire inshore guides versus the cost of chartering the larger offshore boat.
Calm water rides with shorter run time make it easy on the children versus the offshore boat that requires longer runs to the offshore waters.
The Cape Fear River makes Carolina Beach a favorite inshore destination for North Carolina fishermen and families. Give the Cape Fear Guide a call at 910-619-0928 you can tell by talking to this North Carolina inshore guide that this is the man I want to fish with.
