Family Traditions: Summer Fun

We have been coming to Emerald Isle for the last twenty five years. Sometimes it was as much as three or four times a year, we fished at the old Emerald Isle Pier until it was destroyed in the 80’s, then we fished on Indian Beach Pier til it was gone, then we fished on the Iron Steamer until it too was gone.

We have had some of the best memories of our lives on this special island, we call our second home. We have met and made friends with a lot of people we hold very dear to us. Now we mostly surf fish in the spring and fall. Sometimes we’ll fish on Bogue Pier at night. This year we celebrate 46 years together and we plan to be where we have enjoyed so many of those years.

Friends of the Island,
Nancy & James Prater
