Default What Your Favorite Fish to Pier Fish For?

Mine used to be King Mackerel. There is something very special about seeing a King throwing a cigar minnow to him and working him up. Like hand feeding a wild animal. I still like it, but,

My favorite fish to fish for from a pier is Pompano in clear water. I love to see them coming down the beachand pitch a jig to them. That has become my favorite fish to sight fish for in our area. To be completely honest I would rather see them coming in 1s ,2s and 3s than in large schools, it seems more rewarding to fool a single than have a whole school chase a jig. I love that stuff.

What is your favorite fish to fish for from a pier?

Dude, if you can vouch me and help me catch some grouper off the pier ( when season opens up ), would be grateful. If you do any surf fishing, I'll give you one of my heavy duty spikes

I like the pompano answer.



For me, I have to say 5-8 lb. Chicken dolphin. Because they don't come often, when you hook 'em they go batshit crazy and run like hell.



Second would be Bo-Bo's on light tackle when they come in super shallow. No where to go but out, & they run like hell to get there.

Nothing like a monster jack crevelle to test your muscle and your tackle. Not the trophyfeeling of catching a gulf coast game fish but ya get what you came out there for....screamin drag and a bowed up rod.
