The Outer Banks is well-known for its fishing and its waters are some of the best in the world. There are opportunities for offshore and inshore charter fishing, surf and pier fishing, brackish, fly and sound fishing, and deep-sea fishing. The Outer Banks is called "The Billfish Capital of the World," and hundreds of blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish are caught and released every year. The billfish season is long, with the peak for blue marlin in June and white marlin and sailfish most plentiful in August and September. All are caught consistently from late spring to early fall. Yellowfin tuna are also caught year-round. The Avon Fishing Pier, located 1.5 miles south, provides license-free fishing, as well as a Pier House for fishing and beach supplies and refreshments.

It is less expensive to buy food in Kitty Hawk or Nags Head

If you have time on your way down, grocery shop up in Nags Head. The Food Lion in Avon can be crazy busy with endless renters coming down on Saturdays. The Publix Supermarket in Nags Head is great. It is located at 1530 N Croatan Hwy, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948
