The Sunshine Skyway Bridge pier in Tampa Bay is touted as the longest fishing pier in the world. Formed from what was left of the old bridge when the new one was built, this pier allows fishermen to drive on and park their cars just a few feet away from their favorite fishing spot. Some fish commonly caught from the pier are cobia, pompano, grouper, black sea bass, red snapper, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, sheepshead, tarpon, snook and several others. Fishing supplies, bait, tackle, drinks and snacks are available, as well as the ability to obtain a free copy of the latest fishing regulations.
