Default Pier vs Surf Fishing

We are staying in Navarre this June next to the pier. Iíve had much success over the years fishing directly from the surf in SanDestin area. I havenít done much pier fishing so Iím debating whether to spend more time at the pier or chasing pomps and reds from the surf. I also do well at night from surf with small sharks on cut lady fish

I have surf rods and Penn reel set ups so I hope they are fine to use on pier as well.

Pier vs surf folks...what do you prefer?

Pier for variety and numbers. Surf for less competition. June pier traffic will be high and the "bustling humanity" factor should be considered, especially with surf rods. I would suggest investing in some shorter rods for the pier. 9 would be the upper limit, with 8 being about right. Enjoy you trip!
