San Diego Bay Public Fishing Piers

If you're serious about fishing, try sport fishing in the ocean waters. If you love being around water and want to kick-back and relax, try pier fishing on the San Diego Bay. It's peaceful and lets the mind unwind. The public fishing piers are convenient, provide security, have bait shops, concessions and restrooms. Some have fish cleaning stations. Many pier fishermen know the ropes and catch their fair share of fish. If you're not accustomed to the type of fish caught off the piers, ask the pier anglers, most will give you good hints.
