This place has horrible workers...went there once because it seemed like a big hype and supposingly it was great to have them back so some hav said. We forgot out tackle box right outside there door on a weekday. I get it that if we forget something we will just take it as a lost. BUT we tried to call to ask if they could see if it is still there before we drove all the way back for nothing....the guy who answered the phone said ""If its there then it is""...he didnt even bother to go look. What a jerk!! and they charge people to fish there to add his rude personality..you might as well go elsewhere to fish.

To expensive, bath rooms only allow 1 person at a time, can't bring your own alchol, theirs is more expensive then the clubs, they play the same 5 songs over & over & over, staff know nothing about fishing, tides, weather they only know how to operate the cash register. Location is great and it is clean. I have alot of good memories on the pier that go back to 1987 thru IKE the rest will be made on the rocks in front of the pier when surf conditions are good or on other less expensive pier such as 18th street pier in San Leon $6.00 a person & BYOB

This fishing pier is mainly for tourist, which is fine if that is what you are. Would be a good time to spend with your family on vacation. If you are a true fisherman this is not the place for you. The woman who work the pier are not helpful and know very little. Went fishing the other day with my family and I asked what the weather forcast was and she had no idea. Ever heard of NOAA? No old salts here except the sweet old man who cleans the pier, want to talk to someone with charcter then give him a hollar.
