This pier gives access to a rocky reef that harbors drum, redfish, snook, pompano., sheepshead, and others. Other piers that are worth the visit are Picnic Island Park and E.G. Simmons Park.

An excellent spot to find plenty of fish are under bridges that transverse the bay.


  • Big Bass Lakes
    • Ever hear of Edward Medard Reservoir? This is considered one the best Central Florida bass fishing lakes. It has over 600 acres. Formerly called Pleasant Grove Reservoir, the man-made lake is stocked regularly with docks, weed beds, and submerged brush piles that attract largemouth bass, crappie, and bream.

If you go a little bit upstream, the river will flow through miles of pristine wetlands that are perfect for fishing from a canoe or kayak. Another great spot is the Little Manatee River. This is an ideal spot for canoes and kayaks. Bass usually swim throughout this river and you can occasionally hook a snook and other saltwater species near the river mouth.
