The Pier Cup is awarded to the pier angler and the Topsail fishing pier where the heaviest leaderboard fish was weighed in. The name of the angler, the weight of the fish, and the name of the pier where the fish was caught will be engraved on the trophy.
Then the winning pier will retain possession of the Pier Cup until the next Topsail Surf & Pier Fishing Challenge when the Pier Cup will have to be defended.
