Due to the enormous amount of people visiting Holden Beach, NC from out of town and out of state we have decided to follow the Surgeon Generals advise and stay home with that being said Rigged and Ready Fishing Center will be CLOSED for the next few days or more. Hard decision to make but we feel its the best. We love all our customers and friends and lets pray this will not be as serious as other places. ... See MoreSee Less

We took advantage of the last few days of Bluefin Tuna Season up in Manteo, NC. A buddy of mine once told me " if you want to kill a Monster Buck you must go to where they live " this theory is also true when chasing giant Bluefin Tuna. Over the next couple weeks we should have #riggedandreadyfishingcenter completely stocked back up from pinfish fishing to catching these Giant tuna and everything in between!!!! @ Manteo, North Carolina ...

NC BLUEFISH CREEL LIMIT REDUCTION!

FROM 15 to 3 fish! Welcome to NC!

– The creel limit for recreationally-caught bluefish will decrease on Feb. 1 in North Carolina coastal waters.

The creel limit will drop to three fish per person, per day for recreational fishermen fishing from the shore, pier, private vessel, or in any way other than with a for-hire operation.

Recreational fishermen fishing on for-hire vessels (charter boats, head boats, guide boats) can possess up to five bluefish per person, per day.


For the specific regulations, see Proclamation FF-1-2020.

The creel limit reduction complies with the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council/Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission Bluefish Fishery Management Plan and, in conjunction with action taken by other states, is intended to reduce the coastwide recreational harvest from Maine to Florida by 28.6% to prevent exceeding the 2020 recreational harvest limit. The latest coastwide stock assessment determined that bluefish are overfished but overfishing is not occurring. The coastwide commercial bluefish quota is also reduced in 2020. For additional information, see the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council news release.

For more information, contact Division of Marine Fisheries biologist Lee Paramore at 252-473-5734 or lee.paramore@ncdenr.gov.
