Pier Fishing Suggestions


Pier Nets ...would strongly suggest bringing a pier net when fishing the area piers. Our last trip we lost a bruiser sting ray because we did not bring one. We have one but it's too bulky to load in the little car we use for road trips.

Found this video of collapsible  pier net... am almost done making one; will be ready going forward!

Fish Bites ...wish we knew about this; would have used it on our last trip to the Coast! It's an odorless bait that comes in several "flavors" like shrmip, mullet, and crab.

Have not tried it yet, but others have caught fish like Whiting, Croaker, and Red Fish using Fish Bites! Gonna give it a try next time we are on the Coast... may even try it locally in the area lakes and ponds in our area!
