For those wanting to keep their feet grounded, we have great local pier fishing.

Cherry Grove Pier

The Cherry Grove Pier dates back to the 1950’s. In 1999, Hurricane Floyd, hit the Atlantic Coast, causing the pier to be rebuilt. Today, the observation deck is nearly 1,000 feet long, and the attraction is most popular for family fishing. A fishing license is not required to fish at the Cherry Grove Pier. The gift shop is newly remodeled and has everything you need for your fishing adventure. The shop offers rentals and sales, helping you with the best bait for your catch. There are one-day fishing passes available with your own fishing rod at $3.00/admission and $7.50/rod. Visitors can rent a fishing rod for a full day or half. Prices range from $13-$20 with a deposit required.

Apache Pier

The Apache Pier is a beautiful scenic area that is wonderful for a long walk, or a full day of fishing. The pier is open 365 days of the year and is the longest pier on the East Coast. The Apache Bait & Tackle shop offers rod and reel rentals to meet all of your fishing needs. All visitors can walk on the Apache Pier for $2.00. If there is live music, then it is $3.00. Fishing for the day starts at $10.50 with two rods included. Spend the week fishing for $45, or the month for $140.
