the surf fishing will be more consistent in may, but there should be decent fishing starting in april. sea mullet, spot, croaker,red & black drum and chopper blues should keep you busy. i usually stop at the pier in kure beach to get a feel for what the fishing has been like.
my favorite time is october at F.F., but i've never gone down there and had a bad time, even during the dead of winter and there really isn't anything to catch other than sharks and skates.
if the fishing at F.F. is slow then try the north point at freemans park.

OK you salty dog's! what is the best time to fish at FT FISHER? april,may! just wondering i'm ready NOW! getting cabin fever.
Anytime the wind is below 10-15 mph and the air temp is above 55 degrees and the sun is shinning at least half the time, that is a good time to be on the beach at Ft Fisher.

If the fish ain't bitting, then drive around to the creeks and check out the fishing there. If the fish ain't bitting, put out some crab traps then just cruise around in the 4x4 and check out the birds, or look for deer tracks or just plop down a chair and check out the ocean for dolphins, sharks or pelicans and check the traps in a couple of hours.

If you can't enjoy just the plain peace, quite, scenary and seclusion of the beach at Ft Fisher, you have to be dead or at least dead of spirit.

If you don't believe me then just ask the "Fort Fisher Hermit." His spirit is still there if you will just listen for him. IF you don't know who the "Ft Fisher Hermit" is then check out these web sites:cool:

Never fished Fort Fisher, but I caught a documentary on the "Ft Fisher Hermit" on the PBS channel UNC TV. Interesting story. Sad, but interesting. Did they ever figure out who killed that old man? If I remember right in the documentary they were saying it may have been developers that wanted to build on the land.......
