Default Mexico Beach Pier

Planning a trip to Mexico Beach in May and wanted to know what y'all thought of the pier fishing there? I've fished Navarre, Pensacola and Destin, but never Mexico Beach.

It's a small pier and not very long. If you fish for King your better off fishing one of the PCB piers, less than an hour drive.

What he said. If your limited to the MB/St joe area you are better off fishing for trout, reds and flounder from the shoreline anywhere from Highland view all the way around to the cape. If you really want to fish a pier go to Panama.

Its more of a bay type pier as far as fishing but should be ok. Like they said, for real pier fishing, go up to Panama City.

They do have a little jetty (the rocks from the canal out to the bay0 just west of the pier that is free and you can catch the same fish. Spanish Mackerel like to hang out there at that time too. Overall, its a nice little place to fish
