yea

when i was first learning i would go up on the rail and just watch

take in everything you can [how people throw, how they hook baits, etc...]

mainly watch the people who are catching fish, they are the ones to learn from

go on www.ecpff.com , it is nothing but pier fishing on their

im sure it will help alot
