Some easy fun fishing on light tackle at one of America's favorite park, Fort Desoto. We fished the Bay Pier (the shorter one) most of the time and usually do pretty well on just about everything. Mackerel, Pompano, Flounders, Sheepshead, Snapper, Trout, and more.
There is another longer pier down the road (Gulf Pier) that is also another popular destination for the locals. There is some really good fishing off the beaches too, and wading the inshore grass areas produce Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Try fishing the east side of the toll when coming in, make sure to fish the high tide or else you'll be walking in ankle deep water. GL!
