Overview

We are a family friendly fishing pier. We offer rod rentals, bait, cold drinks, sno cones, wine, cold beer, margaritas, snacks, pizza, hot dogs, gifts, and lots of fun. In addition to having a pier for fishing, we also have an observation deck for those who dont want to fish, but want to sit above the water and enjoy the cool breeze of the Gulf of Mexico.

61st Pier is a great pier. Great for fishing! Also some fun thing on the pier as well. I'm glad this pier survived Hurricane Ike.

Had a blast! Caught a shark and the staff was awesome. The restrooms are very clean. And the store has everything you need for fishing and even hott dogs if you get hungry.

The people working the counter were incredibly nice. They have enough stuff to buy if you don't have absolutely everything you need and the prices are reasonable. We had never caught sharks before and pulled in several small hammerheads (no mistaking what they were). Overall,...More
