  • Bait available onsite. Hurry up and visit before they make it a pay per use site. Venice city council? By the people but for themselves! Just because you have to fix it this summer doesn't mean it should be a capital generating project. Maybe we should make city council a VOLUNTEER position! Then we would have plenty of money to fix everything.
  • Beautiful location and great fishing spot! I went here while visiting my family and I had a great time. The water was nice and the area had a ton of fish. I wasn’t fishing but those who were fishing were having great luck.
  • Lovely beach, cool pier. Bring the family or fishing poles, bait & snacks available. We saw dolphins & found fossil shark teeth under the pier. Had a great time.
  • Nice place, nice view over the coast. Didn't go to the restaurant though, only the pier itself.
  • You do not need a license to fish from this pier and can rent a pole there as well. Great place to bring a fishing bud from out of state who wants to try their luck without having to lug any gear and enjoy the sun and view.
