Blue Heron on the Fort Walton Beach Pier

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.
