Where’s the Piers?
Anna Maria – Its 741 feet of boardwalk jutting out over the seabirds and waves of Tampa Bay has become an iconic sight, at the end of Pine Avenue in Anna Maria. The pier is open for free fishing 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Ballast Point Park – It includes a wooden pier, with benches and shady shelters for the fishermen who ply the waters daily for redfish and snook.
Picnic Island Park – It has a long swimming beach, the park has a boat ramp, fishing pier, canoe launch, dog beach, restrooms, children’s playgrounds and picnic shelters galore.
Skyway Fishing Pier State Park – No fishing license needed here. When the new Sunshine Skyway bridge was built over Tampa Bay, connecting St. Petersburg with Sarasota, the old bridge was turned into the world’s longest fishing pier.
Bradenton Riverwalk – The Manatee River is known for its variety of native fish, including snook, redfish, and trout. The Fishing Pier is one of the best spots in the area for anglers.
