My son was awarded today at school for getting the A/B honor roll for the year. He has been asking me for several weeks to take him pier fishing so I thought I would reward him this weekend with a pier fishing trip. (weather permitting) While topsail is within a couple of hours from me I might try and stay overnight. Does anyone know of any motels in the area that moderately priced ($75-$100) that are close to the pier? Any fishing tips would be greatly appreciated as well.
