Second Season

Sharpen your hooks, wax your board, unfurl your kite and break out the oyster knife as the best season of the year is here. Fishing, surfing, kite boarding, seafood festivals, outdoor music festivals – all peak in the fall.

Those in the know realize this time of year offers the best opportunity to make the most of the less crowded ocean piers and sparsely populated beaches.  Whether you’re a weekend warrior or Dare County property owner, it’s time for fun in the sun!

Fall Fishing Outlook

Pier anglers have so many different fish to target this time of year – puppy drum, trout, flounder, bluefish, spot, croaker, pompano and more. Anglers using live bait and fishing from the end of the pier have been extremely successful landing big, bull, red drum the past two years. If you’re new to fishing but would like to take a shot at catching the big one, try one of the pier’s fishing classes.

Angler’s Club Campaign

The Angler’s Club offers people the opportunity to own part of the Pier and to express an important message from your family.

Angler’s Club sponsorships cost $500 each and are red in color and shaped like a fish. Click here for more information.
