On our last day in Florida for spring break we went to the Merry Pier for some fishing. The rain started shortly after our arrival but did not dissuade us. Caught lots of fish and had a great time. $2 rain ponchos worth every penny. Everyone at the Merry Pier were exceedingly friendly and helpful in all things related to fishing. It will be one of our first stops when we return with the family next year.

Son spent a full day fishing at Merry Pier. Very nice people, enjoyed watching the pelicans and dolphins. Ordered take out and ate our lunch at the pier enjoying the scenery. Good day fishing also, lots of fun.

we saw dolphins from the pier before we even left, so they left a little early to take us closer. they apparently have to have a minimum to leave - we were the last 2 to make it happen apparently, so they took our number in case anyone cancelled it sounded like they wouldn't go. seems to be a married couple - very friendly, very knowledgeable about the area. perfect timing for the sunset, chased dolphins on several occasions. dolphin-smart though. $25 per person was a little high, but the parking pass they sold us for $2 helped all over Pass-a-grille.

Merry Pier now has fresh seafood you can take home and prepare. Usually a god selection but it goes by the season.
Bring a cooler, land your catch and grab some ice.

This is a great spot to pier fish, also the shell key shuttle & Miss Pass-a-Grill (great deal). If you are serious about fishing go fishing with OffShorehustler
