    From Newport News looking for places to fish

    I'm trying to find some places for saltwater fishing on this side of the water. People on here seem like they really know the Peninsula so I was hoping people could shoot me in the right direction. Thanks fellas

    Closest place for you would be James River Bridge (JRB) to catch croaker and spot. You can also go to Buckroe Pier in Hampton!

    Go all the way to the end of Jefferson Ave and park in the lot behind King Lincoln Park Stage. There is a pier on the wave screen for the seafood industrial park.

    Do a search on here for Wave Screen for more details.

    Thanks to both of you. I'll try to get to both of these places soon.

    There is a pier on 16th st. in Newport News. Not directly behind Riverside Hospital, but if you go behind Riverside hospital, you will see the pier on 16th st. its only a block or two away, so you can't miss it

    the pier behind lincoln park, if you're new to the area, I wouldn't suggest going there at night.

    Buckroe Beach pier is open 24 hours, wrist bands good from 6am-6am. $8 without FL, $6 with FL

    I've never been to James River Bridge pier, but I've heard it is basically the best spot to fish as far as catching croaker and also catfish which come from the river. It's slightly more expensive then Buckroe I believe

    Ft. Monroe has a pier open, free of charge. Also one of the better spots. It used to be a military base, but it isn't anymore and is free to the public

    This is where History reading comes into play,,,, there is another little icon to click on and will take you into another whole world of info, it's called the "Advanced Search" it is located top right of any page, just click on it and type in Seagull pier and you will see the entire history of fishing from there and what has been caught. http://www.pierandsurf.com/fishing-forum/search.php
