Camping in the Tampa St. Pete area Nov. Dec. anyone ever fish off this pier sounds like it might be worth a look.

No, but I have fished within sight of it at the Fort Desoto (sp) State Park. I was fly fishing between Christmas and New Years and caught quite a few large speckled trout. The east end of the Park has, or had, a fairly large flat that I was able to wade out on and cast to the deeper (2 to 5ft) holes.

It’s a fishy spot and I have always had action there. There is a bait shop on the Bridge and they always know what’s biting and what they want. My Parents have a condo up in Reddingon Shores and when visiting we would always run down to the Skyway. Generally we just run a Sabiki rig to catch Pinfish to then put on a Mexican dropper rig and hold on you never know what is going to bite. You will get cut off a lot by the pilings and landing bigger fish is tough because of the height above water. When the Spanish Mackerel are in the action can get crazy but I believe that is early spring. You’ll have a good time
