Gulf State Park Pier


Gulf State Park Pier

2 Miles East of Route 59 , 20115 State Highway 135, Gulf Shores, 36542, AL

Help your kids reel in a big one at this community gathering spot, the largest pier on the Gulf of Mexico. In summer, the possible bounty ranges from whiting, pompano, redfish and red drum to Spanish mackerel and King mackerel. In winter, whiting and sheepshead are common catches. Anglers ages 12 and up must purchase a fishing permit. Kids under 12 fish free with a paying adult. A saltwater fishing-license (available at the Pier office) is required for those ages 16 and up.

Cool place

Cool place to check out. We were able to see large water birds, large sharks, several stingrays. They have a place to get snacks and drinks as well as a bait shop/store.
