A BIT OF BAIT: Craig, Jessica’s father, and Jordan, a Perry’s employee, talk shop, surrounded by tanks and fridges of live and chilled bait—some of the most live bait carried in a shop in the area.
TIDES OF TIME: Photos from past fishing trips line the walls of the shop and lodge.

SUNDAY BEST: Jessica is seated by the Seawall at Belin Memorial United Methodist Church with her three loves, Liam, Bella and Aden, on Easter Sunday.
About 90 percent of Perry’s bait is caught fresh locally
In 2017, the Perry’s Annual Benefit was organized and created an artificial reef in Jessica’s honor at Pawley’s Island Reef (PA 11 - 33° 25.975’ N - 079° 00.600’ W). Years before, she had created a reef fund for the founder of Perry’s Bait and Tackle, Mr. Winston Perry, at Paradise Reef (PA 09).
FUTURE VIEWS: The Perry siblings relax on the lodge’s back porch that overlooks breathtaking views of the inlet.
LIVING VISION: Jessica’s vision was to renovate the fishing lodge into a beautiful respite for generations to come visit and enjoy the inlet, the place she loved so much.
