Aug 21, 2022 | About Albemarle

Albemarle Plantation is an authentic coastal community set along the deep blue waters of the Albemarle Sound. This large basin is a unique blend of fresh and brackish water which provides a wide variety of fish that can be found year-round like Striped Bass, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Weakfish, Flounder, and Red Drum. While Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Cobia, and Bluefish are caught seasonally. Adventure awaits and our private, deep-water marina is your launching point for a great day of fishing!

In the rivers that feed the Albemarle Sound there are abundant Crappie, and Striped Bass fishing can be excellent in both the rivers and the sound. There are also lots of bottom feeders to fish for including, Croaker, Spot, Puppy Drum, White Perch, and Flounder.

Additionally, anglers will want to check out the Albemarle Sound Bridge and the Manns Harbor Bridge, both are very productive areas to cast your lines. Both structures can provide excellent bottom fishing and Striped Bass fishing year-round.
