Departing from the South harbour Marina I was able to go in front of Oak Island to fish in what locals call the Hot Spot - where outflow from a nearby nuclear power plant spills into the Atlantic. We did not have any luck fishing, but the U.S. Open King Mackerel fishing tournament is held each year in this same proven location.

Heading back to port we passed right by the waterfront section of Southport and saw many famous landmarks from the motion picture Safe Haven that was filmed in town. Just as in S.C., the once vibrant shrimping industry in Southport has been replaced by the more reliable income of tourism. Lots of dockside restaurants, maritime culture, and scenic vistas caught my attention like the Fishy Fishy Café at the marina, which is now on my Brunswick bucket list.
