Fished the bridge this morning for about 2 hours starting around 9:30. I was using squid strips and spearing and caught nothing. I did however get a couple small bites that would rip my bait off right before the hook, I'm guessing those were snappers? I'll be bringing my ultra light tackle next time I go.

Fished the bridge for about an hour this afternoon using spearing. Didn't catch anything but the snappers were ripping my bait apart. They're still kinda small though, maybe 3 or 4 inches. Tight lines guys.

I forget that this is really the only time of year that I fish daylight hours. There are not TOO many places that are packed at a 3am tide Wink

Anyone know what happened here? I drove by to see a fence around it and a no tresspassing sign. I was hoping to fish here today or tomorrow but I guess I need to find another place now.

Hopefully is was just to keep people off the pier during the storm. 
But they are building that new park there, so it could have something to do with that.

A new park has been built at this location with upgrades to the existing facilities.  It's a great improvement.   thumbs up

The upgrades include a large paved parking lot, permanent restroom facilities, benches, picnic tables, canopies, new walkways, a new 50ft dock on the north side, all new bulkheads with boardwalk and rails.  There are fish cleaning stations with running water in two locations.  The existing fishing pier (old bridge) has been resurfaced and a canopy and table added.  The area on the south side on bridge now has a bulkhead and walkway. 

It's a great improvement to a prime fishing a crabbing spot in the area.  And increases the functionality of the space and the usable space. 

-Work is still ongoing to the marina portion of the project, but that has no effect on the park portion.

Is there a gas dock just to the south (right if on it)? I think I met Don from Cannyon Reels there for a reel swap once. The crabbing is good there?

Not sure about a gas dock, I take my truck to the Wawa  Roll Eyes
Crabbing around the bridge is typically pretty good.  Aside from land based crabbing, a decent number of boats usually anchor just to the north of the bridge for crabbing.

Ok, I think thats the one. I actually did the same thing in the winter looking for some winter flounder but caught nothing but crabs that day.
