It is old and needs to be cleaned up. Visited at night and saw roaches crawling around. Not what I expected.

Nice, newish restaurant/bar and fishing from the pier. Be careful of sharks in the water, the bait from fishermen attracts them. Lot of surfing happens here. Mostly locals come here - watch out for drunk beach bums, though. You cannot drive on the beach until you go past the pier.

Bob Hall pier never disappoints. After visiting 2 other piers with no results we cast our lot at Bob Hall. We caught 2 hammerheads and 6 bonnet head sharks. The guys at the end of the pier pulled out a 6 ft. Black tip shark.

Made a stop in the area. It's $2pp to go on the pier. Beach area looked nice. Tons of people. I like how you can drive your vehicle on the beach and park then set up right by your car. Saw picnic tables, pay to rinse off area-.25.

This is the place for pier fishing. Lots of space on the Pier, and plenty of locals. Fishing was very good the night we went. We did not fish, but walked out to watch others fish. There was a bar next door, but we did not feel comfortable hanging out there.

I have been fishing on Bob Hall Pier since it was made of wood and had shark hanging posts near the ramp entrance, If you want to catch a variety of fish Bob Hall Pier is the place to be!

Loved the convenience of the free parking, covered picnic table, and nearby snack/convenience building. Had a wonderful day!

We were visiting from out of town and came to this pier because they offered fishing pole rentals. The pier was fine however the rental price per pole was $22. In order to walk onto the pier, there is an admission fee of a couple of dollars which is nice when you are fishing to keep down traffic. Parking is... More

I have fished this pier a number of times since 1990 and have never been disappointed. God provides some of the best sunrises and sunsets! Caught a lot of speck trout, red and sharks.
