Anglers can explore the exceptional fishing of the Carolina Beach inshore waters while hopefully cashing in on some attractive prizes at this annual tournament that reels in local and visiting anglers alike. The Carolina Beach Inshore Challenge is a fun and full-day fishing tournament that targets the waters of Carolina Beach Inlet and beyond to reel in some big rewards.

The fall season is well-known as one of the most enticing seasons for anglers in the coastal Cape Fear area, and fishermen can take full advantage of the solid conditions by signing up for this casual but engaging tournament. The Inlet Watch Marina serves as the home base for the event, with fishing occurring all day on Saturday, followed by an awards party and ceremony for the tournament’s big winners. Though the exact amounts may vary, anglers can typically win up to $1,000 for the biggest catch, making it an event that’s also financially appealing. A full schedule for the tournament as well as registration forms can be found online, and anglers of all abilities are welcome to join in. With cooler fall weather and ample opportunities to enjoy the great seasonal fishing, this tournament is a fine way to explore the inshore waters off of Carolina Beach.
