The Oregon Inlet is no longer deep enough for large fishing boats to safely pass through. Many North Carolina fishermen are selling their catches in Virginia as a result.
State officials say 971,000 pounds of flounder were diverted to Virginia in the last month.

It would have been way to easy to have built the north jetty 10 years ago.
Contrary to popular thought the south jetty has done a great job and so would have the north jetty.
I have fished the shoals at OI for years and watched the sand migration.
A jetty on the north side would have made things easier to deal with.
Just because you have a P.H.D and a j-o-b that says your a geoligist ..really doesn't mean that ya know everything.The jetties have worked up and down the East Coast and would have worked here but the "eggheads" and "Enviro-nuts" took care of that....and now ya got what ya got
