Was it ever rebuilt after its collapse that July nite? Gosh, I used to fish there a lot (stayed at the Buena Vista) back in the mid 70's. Even taught my wife how to pier fish from that pier. Was a nice pier. Any updates?????

I guess your thinking of the one on the south end and no it is not there. I would love to hear the story of the July night though...

We used to spend a lot of time @ Topsail, S. end before moving to where we are now and word had it that on one 4th of July, so many people loaded the pier to watch the fireworks that it collapsed, throwing many into the water. Seems like it was, I dunno, mid to late 80's perhaps? Maybe a local can chime in on the timeframe, but that's what I've been told.
Anyway, :fishing:
