If you don’t have access to a boat, the piers may be your best chance to catch a trophy redfish. The piers tend to offer better fishing during a tidal change. Combine a tidal change with lowlight conditions during the morning or evening and you should have a better chance to catch some redfish off of the piers. Depending on how crowded the piers are, you may not be able to cast lures up and down the pier. Fishing with shrimp, live bait fish or cut bait on the bottom is how most anglers catch redfish from the piers.
