Bye-bye Summer 👋

October 2021

There’s no doubt Jennette’s Pier provides the heartbeat for Whalebone Junction in Nags Head. From fantastic fall fishing to wonderful weddings and beach days with killer waves, we’ve truly got it all.

This month, Jennette’s will serve as headquarters for the 69th Annual Nags Head Surf Fishing Club’s Invitational Tournament, Oct. 6-8. It’s an honor it first claimed in the inaugural event, in 1951.

Last month too, the Pier and adjacent beach strands were alive with activity. The big-time red drum showed up chewing on the pilings, and right around six dozen of these 40-inch-plus fish were caught and released in the opening three runs.

At the same time, one of the largest amateur surf contests on the East Coast, the ESA’s Championships, was happening on the south beach, drawing 300 competitors and 1,200 to 1,500 total visitors to Nags Head.

Another highlight of “Surftember,” the Surfalorus Film Festival, was held in our Oceanview Hall Wednesday and Thursday nights during same week, Sept. 22-23. The festival concluded that Friday night at the nearby North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island. Secretary Reid Wilson of the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural

Resources was the keynote speaker for the final film, “The Birth of the Endless Summer.”

And while all this activity was happening, the Facility Rental Department kept busy with preparations for weekend wedding receptions that bookended the surf contest.
