The GPS Coordinates For Every Artificial Reef In North Carolina
By: Joe Simonds on November 1, 2018
It’s fishing time in the Tar Heel state!
Do you want to catch more fish in North Carolina in some easy to find spots?
Many anglers go out fishing without any knowledge of where they are going to fish prior to getting on the water.
Often times, this can cause an angler to have a bad day fishing (or even worse, get skunked).
Luckily, North Carolina has one of the best artificial reef programs in the country that offers excellent inshore and offshore fishing.
This post shows you where to go to learn about the North Carolina Artificial Reef Program and where to find the GPS numbers for every reef in the program.
North Carolina Artificial Reef Program
The North Carolina Artificial Reef Program is run by the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries.
The program maintains 42 ocean artificial reefs and 22 estuarine reefs — 15 of which serve as oyster sanctuaries.
These reefs are located 1/2 miles to 38 miles offshore and can be accessed from every maintained inlet in North Carolina.
The estuarine (inshore) reefs are located in Pamlico Sound and its tributaries, the Chowan River and the New River.
You can learn all about the North Carolina Artificial Reef Program — including NC reef fish, ethical angling practices, what materials the reefs are made out of and more at the link below:

Public GPS numbers are really an overlooked method to find some of the best fishing spots in the state.
The offshore North Carolina artificial reefs are home to black sea bass, mahi-mahi, triggerfish, grouper, snapper, cobia and more.
The inshore North Carolina artificial reefs are home to black drum, redfish, flounder, kingfish, trout and more.
Exploring these reefs is a great way to get on the water. It can also be a great way to find your new favorite fishing spots.
