Good place to get some saltwater fishing in. Can rent poles or bring your own. Have seen every thing from sail fish to sharks caught off the pier. Also a great place to see a sunset or view marine life.

We always go out on the pier at least one time while we are in PCB. We like looking over into the ocean and seeing different types of fish swimming around! We also live watching the sunset over the ocean from the pier, and staying after dark to see what the fishermen will reel in!

Most fishermen had cleaned up their area (dead fish). Friendly fisherman to talk to, unfortunately very little sea life today Sept. 15 around 12:00 noon. Last year visited this pier on vacation and saw sea turtles, Sharks, Dolphins, and stingrays. $3.00 charge per person.

My husband, father-in-law and one of our boys were able to escape to the pier for a few hours for fishing until 1:00am. Although, they didn't catch anything (they weren't too disappointed since they'd had a successful deep-sea outing earlier in the day), they enjoyed getting away from the family for awhile.

Have been trying to get here for a few days. Finally made it. Love fishing from piers when not chartering a boat. $3.00 for visitors or $6.00 for fishing, not bad for pier prices, these fees go to the maintenance and upkeep of the structure. Today hurricane Hermine is making landfall so fishing got cut short, pulled in a couple... More

We walked down the pier after dinner at Hook'd and it was stunning! You do have to pay but my boys loved watching the fishermen and my husband and I enjoyed the beautiful sunset. Wish we would have had time to return and do some fishing of our own with our boys. Next time!

I will never in my life return to Panama City Beach, especially this pier. I have been to PCB more than I can count, but it is disgusting now. Trash every where!! It literally hurt my heart to see how little people care for such a beautiful creation. It seems like the city would pick up trash daily, but that... More

Great place to get your vacation fishing fix in when you can't get away from the family too long....it adjoins Pier Park (biggest shopping destination in PCB) so drop off the women for a few hours and catch anything from catfish to Tuna! Bait store near end of pier is so convenient.
