Blue Heron on the Fort Walton Beach Pier

Previous Image Gallery Home Next Image
Officially known as the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier, it was first built in 1972 and was 962 ft long; and in 1998, when the current pier opened, it was lengthened to nearly a 1/4 mile at 1262 feet. The Pier in Fort Walton Beach is all about catching the 'big' one, and indeed some huge fish have been caught off the pier, including a Tarpon that weighed over 100 pounds and a 42 pound King Mackerel.
