fishing report

Sections of Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head will be closed for regular maintenance on the wind turbines Monday, Sept. 7 through Friday, Sept. 11.

Sensational Summer

The summer season remains in full swing at the Pier and fishing has been steady with plenty of catches for both top water and bottom fishermen including bluefish, cobia, croaker, drum, flounder, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel and spot. A few spadefish and triggers have also been taken.

Visitors to Jennette’s also enjoy simply hanging out on the beach or walking the pier to sightsee during the day or night. The education department has classes and camps each week that feature fishing, science, surfing, as well as addition adventure water sports. Click on Programs & Activities to check out all of the different offerings.

Don’t be surprised if you see a bride and groom at the Pier late on weekend afternoons as dozens of weddings are scheduled all the way through November. On the beach, a handful of surfing events are set over the next couple of months.
