Touted to be one of the world's longest piers for fishing, the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park is flanked by sparkling cerulean waters of the Tampa Bay. The park is complete with a northern and southern pier, both locations being marvelous fishing destinations. However, the pier also hosts an array of other recreational activities like kayaking, kite surfing and swimming among others. From flounders and sea bass to mackerels and cobia, a melange of aquatic mammals reside in these deep blue depths. Each location has a bait shop open twenty-hours a day, everyday of the week, selling tackles, rods for rent, accessories, and buckets. Snacks, sandwiches, and hot and cold beverages are also available. A picture-perfect paradise, this idyllic state park is one of Florida's favorite past-time destinations.
