The fishing in Wilbur-by-the-Sea is very versatile. Fishing Wilbur Bay can be done by a backwater boat or kayaks. If you do not have a vessel then the Wilbur Boathouse offers a newly constructed fishing pier, free to the public. Depending on the tides, common local catch includes redfish, flounder, black drum, and mangrove snapper. Beach fishing is also popular with the locals. Seasonal ocean catch includes redfish, tarpon, pompano, flounder and several species of shark.
