The Venice Fishing Pier is located at Brohard Park on the south end of the island of Venice.
The 700-foot pier is a great location for fishing and to end the day watching a beautiful sunset.
Connected to Sharky's on the Pier, the only beach front restaurant in the Venice area, the pier offers Papa's bait shop, with live & frozen bait, coffee, treats, jackets, shirts, and more...
Nearby are six picnic shelters, two sand volleyball courts, and public restrooms.
Open at all times, there is no fee to access the pier and the best part is that avid and amateur fisherman alike can fish from the pier without a fishing license.
NEW! at the Pier:
NEW COFFEE! The bait shop is now selling Venetian Coffee! Warm up & fish!
NEW BAIT! The bait shop has frozen shrimp, frozen squid, and frozen sardines.
LIVE SHRIMP! Don't forget we have live shrimp too.
