Skyway Fishing Pier State Park

Enjoy fishing or sightseeing on the longest fishing pier in the world! Since the original span of the Skyway Bridge was built over Tampa Bay in 1954, fishermen have been targeting a variety of fish from this location.  When the middle of the bridge was demolished, the concrete and steele rubble was strategically placed to form artificial reefs along both piers and offshore which attract a wide variety of species.

You can also enjoy magnificent sunrises and beautiful sunsets from the pier, which is open 24 hours every day of the year. Fishing supplies, snacks, drinks and bait are all available on both the north and south piers. And, best of all, you don't even need a license to fish for species like tarpon, kingfish, Spanish mackerel and grouper.  A pier fishing license covers all guests with a paid entrance pass.
