Owner description: We are a family friendly fishing pier. We offer rod rentals, bait, cold drinks, sno cones, wine, cold beer, margaritas, snacks, pizza, hot dogs, gifts, and lots of fun. In addition to having a pier for fishing, we also have an observation deck for those who dont want to fish, but want to sit above the water and enjoy the cool breeze of the Gulf of Mexico.

Easy access. Great location, we usually stay nearby and take binoculars to see how the fisherman are doing. then head over to fish.

We have never fished but our son has taken a interested.. this place is perfect if you are new at this... He has caught over 40 fish in one day... some small some big... They have a snack bar for snacks or drinks, restrooms, and shade if you get tired of the sun all day... It's the perfect place if you are clueless where to start.... very nice and helpful staff ! :)

personaly I'd rather bring my own gear and fish from shore. This place is ok if you just want to waist a little time and you might get a nibble. but nothing real spectacular

Well worth the $10 per adult ($8 for kids) to fish off this pier. We only have lake-worthy fishing rods, so we rented stronger rods at $8 each (includes tackle). Our teenage sons had such a great time that we had to beg them to leave--they pulled in a LOT of fish, most of which became bait, and even a small (2.5 ft) shark!
There were people from all walks of life on the pier but it was like a brotherhood of fishermen. Interesting & fun day.
