    There r still some piers in that area , can't never keep all those islands figured out i ,know the last one before S.C has a pier ,also a pier in cherry grove in s.c. . There is beach access at all the locations u mentioned for surf fishing . OF all the places u name CALABASH IS THE ONLY ONE I CAN GARENTEE YOU CATCHING FISH AT [CAPT. NANCE,S SEAFOOD RESTURANT ] TO ME THEM FISH R GOOD TOO :smile2:

    Thanks, We're staying on the ICW, maybe catch a few there, talked to a guy at ocean Isle pier yesterday on the phone, he said some good fish were being caught in the early morning, maybe I'll catch enough for a few meals atleast. Heard several good reports up near fort fisher, and kure beach, wish we were going there, just cuz I know more about it, and good areas to fish, but cant complain with a free house for a week.

    thanks again,
    Michael

    I fish oak island when vacationing. The icw is better by far on a average day. We caught fish very well this time last year.

    All I could catch in the surf was sting rays.

    Good luck.
