Millions of tourists flock to Florida every year for the beaches, food, entertainment and fishing. Specifically, Ft. Pierce offers easy access to the deep waters of the Atlantic as well as many great locations for surf fishing.
For starters, book your stay at Dockside Inn so as soon as you step out of your room and have access to five fishing piers right on the resort grounds. After you’ve warmed up catching snook, bluefish, trout and red drum at Dockside, here are some other great pier fishing spots in Ft. Pierce:
Catwalk at South Bridge / Ft. Pierce Jetties—along Fisherman’s Wharf is the public pier with access to a marina, boat ramp and storage. There are two jetties along both sides of the pier which adds to the popularity of the area, especially for those fishing from a boat.
South Jetty Park—this pier along Seaway Drive is one of the longest in the area at 1,200 feet. There is a restroom on site that is open to the public and this spot is really nice for those that want a little extra room when they cast.
Inlet State Park—head to this secret spot when you need a little mix of great surf fishing surrounded by nature. Located on the Inlet, the area has access to a unique migration channel for the costal fish.
No matter where you cast off in Ft. Pierce, you’ll be sure to enjoy a great atmosphere in one of south Florida’s best cities.
