Inshore Trail
A flounder and red drum season-long points trail consisting of the five Inshore Challenge events below.

Ocean Isle Inshore Challenge
A flounder and red drum tournament the weekend after Memorial Day weekend that is predicted to attract 50-75 boats and close to 200 participants.

Topsail Inshore Challenge
A flounder and red drum tournament in June that typically attracts 50-75 boats and close to 200 participants.

Wrightsville Beach Inshore Challenge
A flounder and red drum tournament in late July that typically attracts 80-100 boats and well over 200 participants. The Tournament HQ is at Wild Wing Cafe, a highly visible location in Wilmington near the intersection of Eastwood and Military Cutoff (big volume of drive-by traffic perfect for displaying boats, vehicles, and other products in the parking lot next to the tents and highway).

Southport Inshore Challenge
A flounder and red drum tournament in August that typically attracts 75-100 boats and well over 200 participants.

Carolina Beach Inshore Challenge
A flounder and red drum tournament in mid-September that typically attracts 80-100 boats and well over 200 participants.

Wide Open Tech Spanish Mackerel Open
A spanish mackerel tournament that’s family friendly with a very strong emphasis on junior anglers (three different junior angler age groups, several junior angler prizes, and every junior angler that even fishes the event receives a prize pack). This tournament is also hosted at Wild Wing Cafe and is great for displaying products and services in front of the large number of Spanish Mackerel Open participants, the drive-by traffic on Military Cutoff, and the volume of customers (visitors and locals) that dine and/or drink at Wild Wing Cafe.

Topsail Spring Surf & Pier Fishing Challenge
This is one of our newer spring events, and it offers both a Surf and a Pier Division. This event incorporates all three Topsail piers and all of Topsail Island: North Topsail Beach, Surf City, and Topsail Beach.

Hatteras Island Surf Fishing Challenge
This is our newest surf fishing event and incorporates the entire beach strand of Hatteras Island featuring weigh-in locations at Rodanthe, Avon, Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras Village.

Pleasure Island Surf Fishing Challenge
We’ve been hosting this event for ten years, and for the last three years this popular surf fishing event has attracted just under 500 anglers to Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Fort Fisher. The surf fishing community is large and loyal, and this event can put you directly in front of this large and growing crowd.

Topsail Fall Surf & Pier Fishing Challenge
This is an event for targeting the surf and pier fishermen who come to the beach for North Carolina’s popular fall surf fishing. This event incorporates all three Topsail piers and all of Topsail Island: North Topsail Beach, Surf City, and Topsail Beach.

Moe’s Original BBQ Paddle Battle
A new event we’re adding to our 2017 calendar. Anglers will take to the waters of southeast North Carolina in kayaks and on paddleboards to fish for red drum, flounder, and speckled trout.

Fisherman’s Post Saltwater Fishing Schools
Our saltwater fishing schools (Wilmington, Morehead City, and Greenville, NC) attract as many as 300+ participants for each school. This crowd is mainly comprised of boat owners with disposable income (but perhaps limited free time), so they attend our fishing schools to make the most of their opportunities to get out on the water.
