Extending 850 feet into the Atlantic Ocean, the Jolly Roger Pier has long been an area landmark known not only for its superb fishing, but also as a great place to stroll. View the abundant area wildlife, including sea and shore birds, fish, dolphin, and sea turtles. The Island’s best sunrises are seen from the Pier, and full moons are a special treat as they come up over the ocean. The pier is fully lit at night and an evening stroll is a tradition for many generations of Topsail vacationers. Guests at the Jolly Roger Inn may walk the Pier free of charge, and they receive a discount on fishing fees as well.
For the expert or novice fisherman, the Pier has a fully stocked tackle shop, with all bait and tackle for pier, surf, sound, and offshore fishing. Rod rentals, ice, snacks, domestic and imported beer, and other beverages are also available.
The tackle shop also carries a complete line of beach necessities, from sunscreen and toiletries, to Jolly Roger branded hats and t-shirts. Our staff is a great source of local information and lore, and we're open early and late for your convenience.
Fishing Tickets for children age 13 and younger are half-price!
Registered Jolly Roger Inn guests receive a $1/day discount on their daily, 3-day, and weekly fishing permits, and free pier spectator privileges during their stay.
