Overview

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.

We saw it from the seawall. As we wanted to go inside, no fishing we still had to pay so, we left that place.

You'll pay through the nose for gear, bait, snacks. Bring it with you. And check your change if you do have to buy something there.
