Palm Beach County is a popular destination for offshore fishing. Here you'll find Tarpon, Sailfish, Snook, Trout, and more. If you want to go fishing but don't feel like taking the boat out, the area has plenty of fishing piers. Here are the piers with the highest-rated Google reviews by fishermen.
Phil Foster Park
The fishing pier at Phil Foster is an amenity to a beautiful waterfront park. The pier is often shaded by the Blue Heron Bridge and stretches out over an area of possibly the clearest water in Palm Beach County. Because of this, the park is also a favorite for snorkelers and divers, but the pier reaches far out of their way. Right on the Intracoastal, you'll be able to see straight down to the bottom and find schools of Snook, Jack, and Sheepshead aplenty. Because this particular area is so filled with marine life, you'll also have the pleasure of seeing huge starfish, stingrays, reef fish, and more. It does not cost anything to enter the park or use the pier, which was rated 4.5 online. Click here for more info.
