Did I Mention Topsail Fishing?
Topsail Island and surrounding areas are host to some of the best coastal fishing anywhere. You can relax on the sand and fish in the surf, you can check out one of the 3 piers here on Topsail island or you can book a trip with one of many experienced, local Captains for either in-shore or off-shore fishing excursions.
This time of year you can expect to catch a wide variety of fish in Topsail waters. Red Drum are typically plentiful in the surf and sound during the summer as are flounder and also sheepshead. Flounder are my favorite fish. Flounder, for those of you who haven’t tried it, is a mild, white, flaky fish that is absolutely delightful fried, baked, grilled or any other way you choose to prepare it.
On the piers during the summer you will find folks reeling in spanish, blue fish and also good size trout which are are another delicious fish to eat. Some of these catches require specialized bait and tackle but the trout are caught a lot of times on nothing more than live shrimp. Our friends at East Coast Sports offer a frequently updated fishing report. Watch a recent report for July 3rd, 2013.
