What is the cost to fish on the pier?
It is $8/day/person and you will get a wristband so that you can come and go on the pier all day and night if you would like. Children under 48” tall is $5/day/child and young children in strollers that will stay in the stroller and not walk around are free. Tuesdays are $7 for Seniors Citizens.
What if I don’t fish, or someone with me doesn’t fish, but wants to go on the pier to be with me and/or my family/friends?
The cost is still $8/day/person to receive the wristband. Children under 48” is $5/day/child. Again young children in strollers, staying in strollers are free. You may also take a walk down and back for $1; however, you may not stay on the pier. If you should decide to stay, you would need the $8 wristband and the $1 would be deducted from that cost.
