Welcome to North Carolina Shark Fishing

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

Hello everyone, welcome to North Carolina Shark Fishing, sister site of Texas Shark Fishing.

I have been fishing for sharks on the NC coast for a few years now and will share some of my experience with you on this site.

Before I get too ahead of myself, let me give you the background story.  I’m originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and have been fishing since I’ve been big enough to hold a rod and reel.  In PA, I used to fish for Trout, Steelhead, Panfish, and big Catfish.  I did pretty good.  I found myself constantly trying new methods to catch more and bigger fish.

So it’s only natural that during family vacations to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I started fishing in the ocean.  It didn’t take me long to find my way to some of NC’s awesome piers.  While fishing one night, I watched a pier fisherman land a 4 foot shark.  I haven’t been the same since.  The next year on vacation, I caught my own.

Flash foreword, I live in Wilmington, NC, the atlantic ocean is my backyard, I own more fishing gear than my girlfriend thinks I should, and I still love shark fishing!
