See "fees" section on the Pier homepage for current fishing and spectator fees.

We have both fishing and spectator passes available. Please note that fishing is allowed only beyond the locked gate.

We have facilities at the base of the pier.  There are also bathrooms at City Hall, which about a block away from the pier.

Seasonally, striped bass, kingfish, bluefish, spot, flounder, puffers, skate, croaker, ling, dogfish, weakfish, perch. We do not allow intentional shark fishing. 

We do not rent equipment at this time, and it’s BYOB (bring your own bait!) However, we can refer you to local establishments that offer rentals and sales on fishing gear as well as bait sales. See our Resources page for more information.

Any time they are biting! Usually, early morning or evening provide a good bite, with hot summer afternoons being slower. But you never know when a school of fish is going to swim on by! A changing tide can also bring about fish action, so check out our Weather Page for links for the most current forecast.
