    Oh yes. There is a lot of memories at that pier. First time there was back in 1969 learning how to surf. After the session we would hit Churches Chicken and Fox Surf Shop

    I could tell so many stories of those times I'm 54 and can remember when I was 4 years old standing on the small curb to see over the wall.the bait migrations that came down the coast where a 100 yards wide and as far as you could see north and every thing that swam would be munching on the schools of bait.

    i remember that pier from when I was a little kid. i remember the dog track next to it and the amphitheater. where did you get the picture?
    But if you only have love for your own race
    Then you only leave space to discriminate
    And to discriminate only generates hate
    And when you hate then you're bound to get irate

    The old south Beach pier was my first fishing spot when I got here in 1971.... I remember being called "tourist" and other less attractive names before I learned enough to blend in a bit.... Some of my friends back then (after I made a few) lived on that pier. Great memories.

    I used to fish Haulover pier when I was a kid. Not to sure that the term "deep Atlantic Ocean" fits in there. As I recall that water was 25 ft deep at the very most and that was on the outer "T"
