Does anyone here have any experience fishing any of the piers in Avila Beach? Just moved to the area and want to do some fishing but know nothing about the area. Been once and did what i know but didnt have the best success. Any input would help.

Avila Pier was where I cut my teeth pier fishing as a kid back in the mid 50s ;D so this information is a bit dated. We would go over for a wwek or so every summer and get to connecting rooms so my grandparents could join us. Dad use to buy a hand line for em that ahd 10 jigs on it and I was allowed top fish through the cracks and so were my sisters. Alot of folks did this and we would catch red snappers by the bucket full. The limit was 25 per person and I can rember dad and gramps cleaning 250 one evening. I wonder if anyone else had such an experince at Avila and have often wonder what is now like. Kent
