Catch of the Day
Fishing off Kure Pier you could expect to see a wide variety of fish including Blues and Whiting (Virginia Mullet) in the early spring to Flounder and Spanish Mackerel in early summer. Then when everything starts to heat up you can get some King Mackerel, Tarpon, Sharks (at night), Red and Black Drum, Sheepshead, and many more. Don't hesitate to call us for an up to date report.
The correct way to pronounce Kure, “Cure-eee” is probably our third most asked question, right behind where's your bathroom.
You do not need a fishing license for fishing on the pier, you would need one for fishing anywhere else.
