Be an Ethical Angler Every action has an impact, and the same is true with fishing. You can help reduce the impact of your fishing by practicing ethical angling techniques. These pages will provide you with information on how to fish responsibly, how to rig a line for bottom fishing or catching red drum, as well as things you can do to help fish habitat. You can also watch videos on protecting the resource, as well as catch and release. Don’t forget to take a look at the North Carolina Coastal Recreational Angler’s Guide and the North Carolina 2012 Coastal Recreational Fishing Digest while you are here!
