Oak Island Pier opens Monday

A familiar Brunswick County fishing spot is reopening with a new name Monday. The Yaupon Pier will now be known as the Oak Island Pier. It will be free for walkers and cost $9.50 for fishermen. The pier has been closed for more than a year after a bank foreclosure. The town is still waiting for financing to complete the purchase. In the mean time, Oak Island is leasing the pier from Cooperative Bank for $250 a month. There will be a grand opening celebration Saturday.
