  • We stay right across the street at Casa Del Mar, so we walked over to the beach everyday, I loved being on the very top of the pier, not only did I capture some pretty amazing shots! It was so peacefu...  more »
  • Pier very handsome in the local landscape. It was winter, so despite the Sun, had a lot of wind. Very good for a nice walk on the beach.

  • I went with my dad and brothers and had a great time. We arrived at 6:30 and were fishing in no time. We didn't have a whole lot of luck, but still had fun. There was good music playing on the pier, the other people fishing were all nice, and the bait was good. We had the most success with shrimp, but again our trip was not very successful in terms of catches. We probably stayed out until noon or just after. Our efforts the last 3 hours were fruitless, but still enjoyable. I would definitely go back.
  • As far as service goes it was awesome. The staff was really great. Make sure to bring cash because they do not accept Debit or Credit cards. They are cash only. Beer sales until midnight and half priced admission after 2am. A $20 deposit is required for each rod you rent as well. The pier itself is pretty small and doesn't go out very far. I have fished a lot of fishing piers and this is by far one of the smaller ones I've been to. The first night I came at about 1030pm and stayed until 1am. Was able to catch two bonnet head sharks(less than 24") and three croakers. I'm sure if I would have came at sunrise or sunset I would have done much better. Overall I give it five stars. If they could extend the pier to 300-500 yards it would make for some really awesome fishing.
  • 61ST fishing pier is an amazing place. A great little gift shop and a fantastic view to enjoy drinks and fish. We really enjoyed visiting before our meal and Corinna was great at answering questions about the area. I really recommend you visit here! We will be back for sure.
  • First time fishing this pier and will definitely be doing so again very soon! My wife and I took out one of our grandson's to participate in his first fishing tournament and it was a great experience for the whole family. I must add that the staff there is AWESOME...that alone was enough reason to make this a future fishing spot!
  • I had a great time at 61st pier. Allyn and everyone were very helpful. Awesome environment!! Will definitely be going back!!
