    some of the pylons hold mango at night..if you have to take a squat , drive out to the rest area..the bathrooms on that pier are absolutely revolting !!!!!

    I'm heading out to the Skyway piers tomorrow morning. What did you catch the Snapper on? shrimp?

    The snook bite is ridiculous if you know where to look ;), straight up machine gun style busting. I will give you a hint, it's not on the pier. Poons were thick towards the end of the pier on Thursday night. Big Redfish hanging out around the very beginning of the pier.
    Catch 'em and Release 'em!
