Fishing piers at the Humble Channel Bridge are some of the best known piers
on the Laguna Madre. They are easily accessed but also produce some of the
best pier fishing in the area. Traveling east on SH 358 toward North
Padre Island exit before crossing the Humble Bridge and you have access to
both of the piers. Two independently owned bait stands and fishing piers
border the Humble Channel to the East and West. Live bait is usually
available and the fee to fish the piers are minimal.
Determine which pier to fish (east or west of
channel) based on the prevailing winds. Throwing artificial bait or
usinglive/dead natural bait will work here. Piers are lighted for
great night time fishing. When schooling fish are migrating in fall in
spring these piers can have excellent action.
