The Best Fishing Piers in Rockport, Texas

Below, you’ll find the best fishing piers in Rockport. Each pier is easily accessible and unique, and of course, has plenty of fish for you to catch. Grab all of your gear and get ready to reel in some exciting catches and create memories that will last a lifetime! 

Rockport Pier

The massive pier on the famous Rockport public beach is a great place to catch some fish. This is a popular fishing spot because the pier reaches out past the shoreline, where the trout, drum, and redfish are dominant. Public restrooms and picnic areas are easily accessible from the pier, so you can bring the family to fish, enjoy the beach, and have a picnic lunch!

Cove Harbor Marina

This marina has three different boat ramps that can be used for fishing. Head over to the marina before families start launching their boats or at night for some of the best fishing. Many of the docks and landings have artificial lights that attract baitfish and predatory fish, so you won’t leave without reeling one in!

Fulton Pier

Before heading out the Fulton Pier, stop at the Fulton Harbor Bait and Seafood shop for fishing reports, advice, and fresh bait. Many days, the pier is nearly empty so that you can enjoy a “private” fishing experience! However, if it is busy, there is a lot of space for all anglers.
