Catch of the Day
When doing some North Carolina fishing off Kure Pier, expect to see a wide variety of fish. You may find Blues and Whiting (Virginia Mullet) in the early spring, and Flounder and Spanish Mackerel in early summer. Then, when everything starts to heat up, you can get some King Mackerel, Tarpon, Sharks (at night), Red and Black Drum, Sheepshead, and many more.
Don't hesitate to call us for an up-to-date report.
The correct way to pronounce Kure—“Cure-eee”—is probably our third most asked question, right behind, "Where's your bathroom?"
You do not need a fishing license for fishing on the pier, but you would need one for fishing anywhere else.
