Pompano Beach


Pompano Pier. The 24-hour pier extends more than 1,000 feet into the Atlantic and was partially rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The pier tackle shop sells beer and snacks. There's no longer a charge to enter the pier or to fish. Anglers brag about catching barracuda, jack, and snapper here in the same sitting, along with bluefish, cobia, and, yes, even pompano. 222 N. Pompano Beach Blvd., Pompano Beach, FL. 954/786–4073.

Fish City Pride. Morning, afternoon, and evening drift-fishing trips cost $40 and include fishing gear and bait. Fish City Marina, 2705 N. Riverside Dr., Pompano Beach, FL, 33062. 954/781–1211.
