Fishermen can target many different highly migratory species of fish from these waters.
The nearshore fishing on the numerous artificial reefs and shipwrecks around Morehead City produce lots of Amberjacks, Black Sea Bass, Triggerfish, and Grunt.

During November and December is typically when the Giant Bluefin Tuna show up, with some fish weighing over 1,000 pounds.

With deep water along the Port Wall, a favorite place to fish among Sheepshead and Shark anglers, a variety of big fish pass through the area.
