I want to try out pier fishing and I am new to it. Just starting to get some tackle. But I don't have $500 to get all the gear I might end up with, if I get "hooked" so to speak. .

If I hook up with something, will others help with a gaff or net to get it up? Or is that just rude to assume?

yeah its pretty hard to gaff a fish when you got a rod in your hand so most of the time someone else is ready to help out with one.

Some people will bring a hook just for the fact that they are then needed at the pier. I have never even thought of where to buy one of those hooks years ago. I just always assumed someone had one at the end of the pier .
No one should really have any issue with helping you get a monster out of the water . It's to exciting not to try and help someone land a big fish. They would not bring it if they did not need it.

Number one gaff number one gaff!

Yes people are always more than willing to help people out. It's a game for them see if they can get it first try.

I have a pier net...haven't used it in several years,maybe 4 or more. Make me an offer. If I remember right it came from Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle.
