Owner description: Venice Fishing Pier, 1600 Harbor Dr. S., Venice Island, FL 34285. OPEN DAILY. Fishing License is NOT Required. The Venice Fishing Pier is located at Brohard Park on the south end of the island of Venice, and is owned by the City of Venice. The 700-foot Pier is a great location for fishing and to end the day watching a beautiful sunset. Connected to Sharky's on the Pier, the only beachfront restaurant in the Venice area, the Pier offers Papa's Bait Shop, with live & frozen bait, coffee, treats, jackets, shirts, and more. Nearby are six picnic shelters, two sand volleyball courts, and public restrooms with showers. Open at all times. There is no fee to access the Pier and avid and amateur fisherman of all ages can fish from the Pier without a fishing license.

The pier was a wonderful place to watch old timers teach younger folks how to fish. The sunsets were amazing and parking was ample.

On a Friday night, we wanted someplace to hangout. This site had families, couples, seniors, and singles all enjoying fishing or strolls. Great place to hang since Sharkey's is playing live music.

Even on a holiday week-end, we were able to find parking.

The water was as clear as it gets, definately worth a visit.
