Pompano Beach fishing pier

Pompano Fishing Pier, has reopened as of June 2020 and it is Beautiful. Completely rebuilt, this pier is quite different to other Broward county piers. It is 896 feet long (same length as before), four feet higher than the old one so it can withstand the sea level rise and storm surges. This pier is also roughly 50 percent wider than the old one to help to make it safer for those strolling out along the pier to sightsee thus helping to give a little distance between Fisher people and sightseers. The TEE end of the pier is shaped like a Pompano, the fish that the city was named after.
The Pier Fishing Village area has two restaurants with more to come. Pompano Beachhouse is a great place for a burger or salad and a beer and The Oceanic next door is a bit more upscale. Both are right on the beach.

Fishing this Pier: To start with the underwater structure, it is a rocky bottom making it very good for Snapper fishing. Take a look at the Google satelite images to familarize yourself with the difference between the sandy areas and rocky bottom areas.

Mutton Snapper are found off the end of the Pier.
Mackerel and Bluefish more to the middle on out. The float rig for Mackerel is popular at this pier
Snook lay up and under the length of this pier at night. A technique known as 'walking the dog' is used. Use a Live Shrimp on a 1/0 circle hook attached to a 40in leader, with a small swivel and a barrel eggg sinker on the main line. It is just enough weight to hold a steady level as you walk slowly up and down the pier. Start from the bottom up, go up and down the pier working different depths, as they feed at different depths at different times. With a little patience and perseverance you'll be successful.
