Land-based shark fishing happens on the beach! We deploy baits between100-500yds utilizing a kayak to get them out there. From there it turns into a waiting game for the fish.
FAQ's for our shark fishing excursion:
“Will you be chumming?”
No, it is illegal to chum from the beaches in NC.
“How big is the boat?”
There isn’t one. We land base shark fish so all of our baits are deployed by kayak while we fish from the comfort of the beach.
“What is provided?”
We will have 4-6 rods depending on group size. We also provide all bait and gear necessary. All you need is a CRFL for anyone who is actually wanting to get on a rod and reel to fight a fish (Coastal Recreational Fishing License). That can be purchased here: https://www.ncalvin.org/AlvinMVC/Customer/Search
“How many people can I bring?”
Whoever you want to bring is welcome on the beach but our angler number is generally 6 or under depending on the time of year and shark activity.
“Am I too small or too young?”
Everyone is welcome on the beach and all ages (with guardian) and sizes are welcome to fish but we use a common sense approach to who we’re going to have contend with a shark. We have 8yr olds manage it and 30yr olds that couldn’t. It’s all about getting the right fish on the right gear for the right angler.
