Postcards 2020 Wrightsville Beach: Fishing

In these days when you are supposed to keep your distance from other folks, I think fishing is a great way to pass the time. Even if you are on a pier with other folks, you can maintain your distance. Unfortunately, Wrightsville Beach has closed all beach access until March 31st.

The first postcard is a reproduction of a photograph from 1911 from Arcadia Publishing. The second postcard is what I consider a generic postcard of the time of a Big Fish...hard to tell if it is an actual spot on Wrightsville Beach and it is not used, so I have no message on the back and no postmark. The last postcard is from Johnnie Mercer's Fishing Pier --On the back it says, "For the best in fishing--especially Sheepshead, Blues, Drum, Mullet, Mackerel and Pompano. Tackle, Souvenirs and Refreshments shop at the Pier. Well lighted for night fishing. "
