Great place for a walk anytime, but very nice at night. Watch the locals fish right from the pier. Plenty of places to sit and relax. Best part...it is free, not like other piers in FL.

Rented poles for the day great time. Chopping boards and rinse sinks great prices! Wife and I caught saw several fish. Saw others caught 3 sharks, grouper, snapper, cow fish, lady fish and others! Bring a bucket to hold your live shrimp bait.

A trip to Anna Maria Island is not complete without fishing off the pier. They have improved the property the last few years - even added a couple of swings! We always come here because the fish can't resist the bait. Especially good if you...More

The seashelss along the west coast beaches are,for the most part, dependent on the tide flow. Some mornings the offererings are plentiful, some virtually little but scree. So, watch the surf sites to determine.
