Hi all! Ocean Crest Pier is open to go onto during the daylight hours but the pier house is closed until March 1st. Wagoners Bait & Gas station is out of business (didn't last) and closed. Dutchman Creek tackle shop is open as well as Oak Island Sporting Goods both have somewhat limited hours during the winter. Yaupon Pier is still closed completely (town is still trying to get the money together but it needs repairs too so it won't be opened this year regardless). Of course Boater's World is open in Southport which is where the Wal-Mart is and both carry bait. If you fish on Ocean Crest Pier the security guy may or may not see you and have you buy a ticket (remember you have to bring your bait). If you fish on the surf make sure you have a saltwater fishing license which you can get here at CJ's gas station on the island or the Wal-Mart in Southport. Chatted with Marine Fisheries guys at the car wash and they're always around. Our dunes are still a mess so there will be renourishment going on soon, the permits are posted at beach accesses already. :fishing:,:D
