Pier Fishing Makes the Catch
The Alabama Gulf Coast is known for great fishing. Whether you choose to go Orange Beach charter fishing, shore fishing or kayak fishing, you can drop your line year round. If the idea of being on a boat doesn't exactly float your boat, then consider
a day at the Gulf State Park pier in Gulf Shores. The pier at the Gulf State Park offers 2,448 feet of fishing space along its rails, as well as indoor seating and concession and retail areas for tackle and souvenirs. Take a look at this video on fishing at the pier and see what keeps anglers coming back time and again for their chance to reel in the big one. Saltwater fishing licenses are required for everyone age 16 and older. An annual fishing license may be purchased at the pier for only $11, a bargain when you consider the hours of fishing you can enjoy and the catches you can snag. Alabama residents, ages 65 and over, are not required to have a saltwater fishing license. For more fishing news, look for the What's Biting blogs on our website. These blogs have the latest information on what's in season and biting in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Flounder, ground mullet, pompano, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel and sheepshead can all be hooked from various points on the pier.
