  • We had a great time fishing on the pier several days. The staff and locals on the dock were very helpful 
  • A great view, good fishing, but Texas needs a bottle law. I don't think I have seen so much garbage and old bottles anywhere in the country as this area. 
  • The staff is super friendly! The pier is also kept very clean so it's a wonderful place to take your children to fish. They have great gear to rent too if you did not plan on fishing!

  • Good setup . however , you can do the same thing for free. They are charging a fees just to get in and that's ok but at least have some shaded area or place to sit down. If you are planing to go there Please stop by at academy or Walmart to get the fishing rods and bring your own bait.
  • I've gone fishing here many times since I was a kid. Such a great place to fish and make memories. After the hurricane I was worried this place would not be back up but I am so glad it is! I wouldn't go anywhere else fishing if it ain't there.
  • All the people here are super friendly! Both the staff and the customers. Nice community. Open 24/7. If you're not fishing you can usually walk on the pier for free; sometimes they charge a very small admission fee for holidays or other special times. They serve ice cream from Hey Mikey's! A LOCAL ice cream shop in the historic district near the Strand on Post Office St. Complete with waffle cones! They're also across the street from the famous Kites Unlimited, and downstairs from the restaurant Jimmy's, who deliver to the pier! They also have coffee, frozen lemonade, smoothies, and other great drinks. A great place to hang out!
  • Didn't catch any fish, but had a great time doing it. Nice views of the beach and plenty of friendly people to offer advice to the first time salt water fisherman.
  • First time fishing there ,had a great time with my wife. Staff were very friendly,and helpfull. Restrooms were very clean.I will definitely go there again . It was very good experience.😁
