Sometimes the itch to fish strikes, but you don’t have time for a day on the water. No problem! Leave your boat in the safety of Big Item’s storage unit and head to one of the area’s fishing piers instead. Whether you have an hour or a full day, pier fishing is a great way to enjoy your favorite sport.

Bob Hall Pier can take you way out into the Gulf’s waters. This 1,240-foot elevated pier is a joy to fish from. The pier is open from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. However, on Friday and Saturday it stays lit-up and open 24 hours for all you night fishers.

The Red Dot Pier on the Humble Channel is another local favorite. It stays well-lit at night also, with extended hours until 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Regular hours are from 6:00 a.m. to midnight daily.

You’ll need a $2.00 Pier Pass to access either location. Forget anything? Both piers have a shop to rent gear or purchase bait or snacks.
