Fishing Piers

Fishing on the sound or surfcasting on the beach are both popular in our area. There are several local bait and tackle shops, and several fishing piers are located on the Island:

Jolly Roger Pier

This pier is located in Topsail Beach. It extends 850 feet into the Atlantic Ocean, and has long been an area landmark.
