We fished there yesterday morning and evening, and again this morning. Blues bit good early and late yesterday and this morning up to low tide. The Spanish starting biting in the afternoon yesterday and there was a good bite this morning again, with several really nice fish caught. Johnny Mercer's has a new fish cleaning station now that is really nice.
I have lived in Wilmington for 3 years and I have yet to fish Johnny Mercer. I surf fish Wrightsville beach often (with variable success) but have yet to fish on the pier. I pier fish a lot but I usually head to Topsail. Initially I thought Johnny Mercer pier was far too expensive, but if you factor in my travel time and gas seems to average out (especially since I live 10 mins from Johnny Mercer). I am curious to know the opinions/fishing successes of others while fishing at Johnny Mercer. Are season passes available for purchase? Thanks for your input!
Yea they have season passes. I dont remember the price but i know you could buy them at the end of last season for the upcoming season for a discounted price. I think they were 100 if i remember correctly. Just wish you could get season parking passes.
