Anglers will find a bait shop located just before getting onto the pier that stocks all the gear and bait they need for the day. The pier itself is outfitted with tables that feature running water so that anglers can clean their catch. Species available to catch vary throughout the year and include sea trout, red fish, sharks, and crabs.
