Plan Your Fishing Trip

Bring the Right Bait

Use fresh bait and change it regularly to increase the number of fish you catch. Use the following bait for best results: Mullet, Shrimp, Squid, Live Bloodworms, Artificial Bloodworms and Chicken Necks. Use ample weight on your line when bottom fishing to combat the current and tide conditions.


Practice with the Pros
Watch the pros fish. Ask professionals in the tackle shop how fish are biting and what bait to use. For your convenience, a tackle shop is located at the pier. Show family and friends your fishing skills, then teach them how to do it.

Enjoy "Take a Kid Fishing," where one child is free per paying adult.
