Abstract:
The long, curving, stone dam separating the river from ocean between Federal Point and Baldhead Island, was completed in 1881, closing the inlet, which was opened during a storm in 1761. Designed by Mr. Henry Bacon, the New Inlet Dam allowed waterborne commerce to flourish by eliminating shoals and allowing a deeper channel from the larger volume of water. The Dam was capped with cement later on and is now considered a fisherman's paradise. The Dam was also extended south past Corncake Inlet some years later.

Abstract:
The fishing pier business in North Carolina is booming. For many years there was only one fishing pier in North Carolina at Kure Beach. After Hurricane Hazel the Southeastern North Carolina Beach Association listed eleven, with one in the works. Fishing piers are big business and studies are being done to survey for locations, soundings, tides, and weather, while consulting engineers, owners, contractors, and builders. But there are quite a bit more than those listed by the Association, with piers at Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Atlantic Beach, and Emerald Isle, to name a few. Each pier provides a unique atmosphere for fishing, dining, and scenic views.
