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.

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
u got the green mile witch is all the way down jefferson. 16th street pier but u dont want to go out there them crabbers tend to b in the way and plus them dudes with the openface reels out in the front give ppl a hard time yorktown pier and the 1 right on the other side of the colemen bridge
