This is kid country! Whether they are catching their first fish from the backyard dock, or catching the big one on a charter boat, kids really know how to have fun.

Our sons pictured here are having the time of their lives. They fish from our dock or take a small boat out in the 11 miles of lagoons to try for the big one. Stephen caught a 21-inch king mackerel with friends from Ohio we met on the tennis courts on Hilton Head; they bring their boat to every vacation in Hilton Head.

Sometimes the boys will bike to the General Store and get bait; then they use their crab trap to catch all the crabs they want right from the dock. For those more ambitious folks there are plenty of locations for surf fishing without worry of snagging a swimmer. Good luck!

Coastal North Carolina is known around the world as the site of some of the best saltwater deepsea and surf fishing to be found anywhere. Here's a link that will take you to any and every fishing service at Hilton Head:
