My husband and I stopped here after breakfast to look into fishing the pier. We found the man behind the counter very unfriendly and perturbed that we were asking questions. We actually left before doing anything here.

We have live shrimp every day but sometimes we run out, especially on Wednesday afternoons because our shrimp boat company takes that day off.

Please direct your questions to the Trip Advisor page for the Miss Pass-A-Grille Deep Sea Fishing boat. They dock at Merry Pier but it would be best to have them answer any questions about their fishing trips. Thank you.
