With Navarre being such a small town, the pier is the main attraction for tourists to come visit. Recently tourist season started, meaning lots of people renting rods and discovering that fishing is an amazing experience, as well as a fun, low cost family activity! Most people have been catching hardtail and ladyfish on sabiki rigs. Once hard tail or lady fish are caught, they go down to the end of the pier and try their luck out on catching a king or even Mahi-Mahi.
The bite has been slow recently for all the larger fish. However, hard tail have been doing pretty well if you’re using a sabiki. Some king mackerel have been biting in the early mornings on cigar minnows (live and frozen). Mahi-mahi have been sporadically biting throughout the day, and we typically get one or two every few days. On June 13th, in the mid -morning one of the regulars hooked up on a sail fish, he says it appeared to be five feet long. On the same day, tourists claimed to see a manatee! Even if fishing is poor, we always have a spectacular view here on Navarre Beach!
In addition, The Navarre Pier has received two handicap wheelchairs. The wheelchairs are for those who are already in a regular wheelchair and would like to access the beach. They are equipped with large wheels made for the sand, making it easy to maneuver around the beach. Come see us at the fishing pier or call for more information.
