Visitor Reviews of Avalon Pier

groovyman from UNITED STATES writes:

I'm not much of a fisherman, pretty simple process I was glad. Rods are set up just rent em and buy some bait. Spent 1.5 hours with 4 lines in late Sept caught 2 croakers. Still it was fun for kids.

Things I didn't like - old lady behind counter was a little grumpy. I told her I didn't have a clue what I was doing she seemed a little put out. Also when you go in there's a giant arcade and pool tables etc. No problem just didn't fit my preconceived, romantic notion of a fishing pier. Lost a bottom rig, a $3 fee however I only had a credit card and there is a $10 minimum charge (even though I already just paid $50 for everything else) so I had to buy $7 worth of stuff I didn't want or need.
