Artist's Description

Also known in these pages as the North Topsail Pier, the Seaview Pier is actually its current name. But as the pier’s official website will tell you, it wasn’t always called that. Once upon a time it was known as Salty’s Pier, and at over 1,000 feet long it ranks among the longest on the North Carolina coast. As the North Carolina coast is conveniently located at the junction where the warm Gulf Stream currents meet the colder currents of the North Atlantic, you can catch practically anything in these waters. Spot, bluefish and Spanish Mackerel are common. Albacore and King Mackerel aren’t _un_common. Billfish like marlins and swords are typically found further out, but I wouldn’t want to say you couldn’t catch them here (landing them might be pretty tricky though). And if you’re looking for fresh seafood, the pier’s restaurant has a “You catch ‘em and clean ’em, we’ll cook ’em for ya” policy.

I wonder if they have a sushi chef?
