We have live shrimp every day but sometimes we run out, especially on Wednesday afternoons because our shrimp boat company takes that day off.

Rent some rods and fish off the pier for mangrove snapper, snook, and sheepshead. Buy fresh seafood from the docs, or go on an open boat or shelling cruise. Great place to spend your morning.

We went Shell Island for the day and had an awesome time. The staff at Merry Pier were very helpful in letting us know where to go to find the shells we were looking for.

We loved renting bikes for the day at this place ($25 each for the day). Great place to grab freshly caught seafood too!

Great location for fishing on the sea wall at Pass A Grill. They sell bait and some snacks but also fresh fish fillets.

Merry Pier is just across the road from the beach and while it is a fully functional place to fish and book water trips, it is also a lounge for pelicans. They just rest and so encourage you you to take their picture. And don't...More

About the party boat: 1. Do they offer night trips? 2. During day and afternoon trips do they CHUM, Drift or Just anchor when fishing? 3. What's their total capacity anglers In a single trip? 4. Do they pack and ship fish that are caught during trips? 5. When are they going to update their website in order to compete with competitors?

Please direct your questions to the Trip Advisor page for the Miss Pass-A-Grille Deep Sea Fishing boat. They dock at Merry Pier but it would be best to have them answer any questions about their fishing trips. Thank you.
