Fishing on the Pier
South Parade Pier is a fantastic for fishing and suitable for new and experienced anglers, young and old and also those with limited mobility.
This very popular fishing spot is good all year round. During the summer there's mackerel, garfish, pollack, bass, mullet, bream, smoothhounds, scad and flatties and in the winter, codling, whiting and flounders. All fishing works well off the pier, hence its popularity but the best fishing is during late evening / night at high tide. Generally a light spinning rod with a float fish or simple rig will suffice but if you want to catch something larger try some crab or worm bait!
'Good things come to those who Bait'
Our brand new Fishing Tackle & Bait Shop in the turrett at the pier entrance is opening very soon, so why not come and try a spot of fishing off South Parade Pier and take in the spectacular views of the Solent and Isle of Wight at one of Portsmouth's favourite fishing spots.

2018 EUROPEAN REGULATIONS ON BASS FISHING FOR RECREATIONAL FISHERS
FOR RECREATIONAL FISHERS, ANY BASS CAUGHT DURING 2018 MUST BE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY
THIS APPLIES IF YOU ARE FISHING FROM A VESSEL OR FROM THE SHORE
The European Commissionhas determined that bass stocks remain under pressure despite the measures taken in previous years. It has placed further restrictions o the commercial and recreational fishing sectors in order to address this.
Southern IFCA is working with DEFRA and the Marine Management Organisation to raise awareness of these regulations. These international measures form part of the package of EU regulations to rebuild the fishery.
