In this section, there are charts for creel and bag limits, fishing license requirements and a list of the North Carolina Citation measurements.

A creel and Bag limit identifies the minimum size of the specific species and how many can be caught or harvested in one day.

Every person who fishes on the Outer Banks must have some type of State issued license. There are several exceptions to this rule. It is imperative that you know the rules before you fish in any North Carolina waters.

And finally, the State of North Carolina issues a citation for species that meet a certain criteria of size, weight or a special catch and release. This chart will help identify your catches that meet this level.
