Nice catch. I should have been there yesterday again. Great catch!! Save a few for me buddy!! This work is being done in partnership with Koru Village to ensure that the life of the pier house will extend to future generations. The contractor plans to be out on Friday of this week. The Avon Pier is also open normal business hours.

Outer Banks Fishing Reports
Where was this picture taken? Head boats take passengers on bottom-fishing trips either in the sound or in the near-shore ocean waters and wrecks. Head boats are great for kids because there are restrooms and snacks on board. There are more than miles where you can cast a line for Outer Banks surf fishing — for free. All you need is a surf rod and some bait. Not only will it rot in the sun, but birds and dogs will be attracted to it.
Surf anglers with four-wheel-drive vehicles can drive right out onto on the beach in certain areas of Cape Hatteras National Seashore, but be very clear about the areas that are closed due to wildlife habitat. This makes it really easy to get all your gear to the beach and find the best spot. A pier can get you out into the deep-water fishing grounds for an inexpensive price and without the hassle of a boat.
There are several Outer Banks fishing piers from Kitty Hawk down to Hatteras Island, and they all have bait and tackle shops. Many species of fish are attracted to structure, which is why you often see anglers hanging around bridge pilings. But even without a boat, you can still access some Outer Banks bridges. Park in the parking lot on the southern end of the bridge. Underneath the west end is a nice pier and dock. If you really want to increase your odds of catching a fish, it pays to hire a guide.
These are people who are out on the water every day, and they know where the fish are and how to catch them. Inshore guides typically fish in the sounds, inlets or near-shore waters and offer light-tackle or fly-fishing trips. You can find an inshore guide through a tackle shop or a marina see the list below.

This is the big-time fishing the Outer Banks is known for. Off-shore fishing means heading out to sea to the Gulf Stream, where giant species of fish like billfish, tuna and dolphin lurk. Because the journey to the Gulf Stream is at least an hour, sometimes more, off-shore charters last a full day, starting at around 5 a.
All you need to bring is food, drinks, sunscreen and seasickness remedies; the captain and mate supply everything else and offer any instruction you need. You can book an off-shore charter through one of the local marinas see the list below.
Charter boats are located close to the inlets for easy access to the ocean; since there are no inlets on the northern Outer Banks there are no charter boats there either. Brought to you by:.
