Newport Pier / Pier Park, Sunny Isles Beach
Went to newport pier, aka pier park today. Really windy with giant waves. Used live shrimp and cut squid on fishfinder rigs (egg sinker) with a single hook, and only caught a few leatherjackets. Around 9 saw a dude pull out a 45" or larger kingfish, and that was the only real action from the pier today. All the locals were using probably around 10-11 foot rods, most likely trolley rigging but I didn't ask because I don't speak spanish lol. Fished from 9 am to 1 pm. Anyone fish this pier before with success?
