Galveston’s 61st Street Fishing Pier

Are you the type that loves spending the entire day fishing? If not, have you ever been interested in doing so?  Whether do you it alone or with a group of friends or family, Galveston’s 61st Street Fishing Pier is a premier Galveston spot for doing just that. It’s a one-stop shop for everything you need to have a great time fishing. What’s even better is that it’s open 24/7, so you can fish any time of day or night. Come see what you can catch!

Fun for the Whole Family

There’s plenty for fish-loving families to enjoy here at 61st Street Pier. Conveniently located on Seawall Boulevard (at the very end of 61st Street), the pier offers everything you could need for a comfortable day of fishing. Snacks, drinks, simple meals, and souvenirs are all available for purchase here, so you don’t even have to leave when you get hungry. Alcohol must be bought at the pier, and since this is a family destination, partiers who get too rowdy will be asked to leave. So as long as you can behave, you’re more than welcome to enjoy yourself at the 61st Street Pier.

The Details

Admission to the pier is paid by the day, with wristbands expiring at 6:00am. Those who want to fish in the wee hours of the morning can get a discount, though new wristbands must be purchased to stay after 6:00am. Fully-equipped fishing rods can be rented at the pier, and a variety of bait is available for purchase as well. A maximum of two rods per person is allowed, with rod length not to exceed 10 feet. Anglers are allowed to bring small carts (less than 3’6” long) onto the pier to transport their chairs and other belongings. No glass containers are permitted, pets or sleeping is allowed on the pier. And of course, anglers over 17 must have a valid fishing license, which can easily be purchased at Walmart or online with a smartphone.

What’s Nearby?

In case you need a good, solid meal to get in the mood for fishing or need to fuel up after a long day, there are a variety of restaurants near the pier. McDonald’s, Popeyes, Waffle House, and Golden Corral are all within a few blocks away, as well as a Kroger grocery store, so you can load your cooler up with pier snacks. And of course, if you want to spend the rest of your day lounging at the beach, you’re already there!
