    "The Avon Fishing Pier is a Hatteras Island landmark, attracting fishermen from all over the country who want to try their luck at reeling in one of the notoriously large red drums that make seasonal appearances.
    Opening its doors in 1962, Avon Pier was the first pier constructed on Hatteras Island and was instrumental in expanding the southern Outer Banks' reputation as a world-class fishing destination. This reputation was cemented in 1984 when a world-record breaking red drum, clocking in at a little over 94 pounds, was caught just yards away from the pier structure. Since then, drum hunters have flocked to the Avon Pier in hopes of making their own record-breaking catch.
    The pier itself is 600' feet long and completely wooden, with buckled planks which cause the pier to look like it's uneven, and certainly un-level, as it bobs up and down. This wobbly appearance is due to decades of storms that have left their mark, including Isabel in 2003, Irene in 2011, and even Sandy in 2012. Visitors can rest assured, however, that the pier is solid, and every dose of storm damage is quickly repaired before the next wave of fishermen come calling.
    While drum is obviously the signature catch of the pier, (and is even the dominant image on both the pier's sign and the pier's logo), fishermen of all seasons can expect to enjoy a wide variety of catches. Spot, cobia, pompano, mullet, bluefish, and mackerel can all be landed, depending on the season, and virtually any day is a great day to enjoy the salt air and the incredible open view. The pier overlooks most all of the town of Avon, and features dozens of benches, fish-cleaning tables, and a wide landing, (known locally as "The T"), at the end of the structure to support plenty of anglers." -OuterBanks.com #avonpier #hatterasisland #backintheday

    My husband and I have owned a cottage in Avon since 2010 and while we do not fish, walking on this pier is my favorite Outer Banks activity. It is a source of my joy to see when necessary repairs are able to be accomplished and the pier opens for another season!
