The pier was not well stocked and very highly priced. It was a high traffic weekend and the waters were rough. The ice cream was never in stock... If you are a fisherman the pier provides adequate fishing area for king fisherman without impact of tourist traffic.. The upper view of the pier was the best part of the visit .

In Emerald Isle at the end of Bogue Inlet Drive is a great fishing pier that stretches out into the Atlantic. Its been in operation for the past 50 odd years and I've been going there with my family for the past ten.

If you want to just walk onto the pier, stretch your legs and walk to the end to enjoy the views, thats free of charge, but if you want to fish, which is what most people head to the pier for, then
entrance is $10 for the day, for each person that is fishing over the age of 6 years old. That allows you to have two fishing rods on the go at any one time. As that's for the whole day its very reasonable as although there are no guarantees, you do have a very good chance of catching fish, especially if your there in the mackerel season. In my opinion its the next best thing if you are down in Emerald Isle on vacation and you don't have access to a boat.

Fish for bait fish in the surf area and for Cobia, Spanish and King Mackerel down the far end of the pier with either live bait or "Gotcha" plugs which you can buy from the store situated at the entrance to the pier. Cold drinks, sodas, beers and snacks are available at reasonable cost, as well as various fishing tackle products if you need them. They even have a rod and reel rental possibility if you turn up without your fishing equipment. Various bait is also available so you can theoretically just turn up and play. Bathrooms are also provided.

Most people on the pier seem very helpful and advice is freely given in the common cause of catching fish.

If your a dedicated fisherman or a family looking for an afternoons activity for the kids, this is great place to come and spend a few hours and have fun.
