Default PCB Pier Selection

I'm planning to visit PCB next week(1/1 - 1/3). I'll stay there for only 2 days. I believe they have two fishing piers, Dan Russel and County Pier. Which one is better to catch some Flounders, Sheepshed or Spanish? I wonder how they are doing now and which pier is better to try. Those bait shops at the piers, are they carring live baits too? I appreciate any information.

Default Pier Park fishing pier

I'm not a pier angler but the pier at Pier Park is the newest and longest.
You might check with Half Hitch, they have a bait and tackle shop at the pier.

I am from PCB and both piers are the same length and were just both buillt after Ivan. Neither one is particularly better it just depends on the day. Sheepies I know for sure are all over the pier at pier park but I am sure they are also on the other one also. Good Luck

They are also designed the exact same. So I would just fish which ever you are closest to.

Thank you for your advice. I guess it's just my luck of the day then.

Default pier

Wasn't aware they were the same. I have walked out to the end of the pier at Pier Park and it's awesome. I remember driving by a pier toward PCB and it looked shorter than Pier Park.

Yep they are both the same and I am pretty sure but not 100% that they are the longest piers on the gulf coast.

Looks like they were the biggest piers on the gulf coast side in florida.

Pier Park pier was built first, then just over a year later, the county used the city's plans and built theirs. You are able to park closer on the county pier than on the city pier. There is a restroom on the county pier where on the city pier you have to walk back to the ticket booth.
