I never new you could fish off the pier at night. I thought they closed up at dark due to not having lights on the pier. Thanks for the update.From what I have witnessed and heard the fishing shuts down at dark and the predator's come out. I believe that is why you can fish off Myrtle Beach State Park pier for free after dark.
Any special types of bait or rigs? Glow sticks?Fishing off a dark pier in the middle of the night can be very productive especially with bait , all types of predatory fish prowl that structure under the cover of night .
Several years ago I used to fish off the garden City Pier all night long. They would open at 6:00 in the morning and you could fish till 6:00 the next morning. I don't know if they still have that arrangement maybe worth calling.
