Default Green Bridge - Palmetto/Bradenton

Looking to hit the green bridge fishing pier this week. Anyone familiar with that area that can steer me towards the nearest bait shop. Also, having never fished that pier, any area to be aware of ? Thanks in advance.

not an expert on the pier but live and boat in the area. there is a new bait shop on business 41 in palmetto just south of the Publix and north, opposite side of the road of the Bank of America. Also, there is skyway bait and tackle just north of palmetto on 19.

There is not much off the pier. Good for lil kids if you want to catch bait and catfish.

With that said, try wading the river....

I go by there everytime I head out and always see folks fishing it so I gave it a go a couple weeks ago when it was particulatly breezy.

Figured it would be thick in sheepshead but didnt catch a one even though I was targeting them. Tons of tiny mango's (almost every cast) but nothing for the table.

As far as bait in the area frim the boat: Regatta Point Marina almost always has live shrimp, there's a bait shop in Cutts Edge next to Marsh Harbor and a bait barge just off the ramps at Riverside Park in Palmetto a houseboat heading out right before you get out of the river.

I think the barge and houseboat are out of the game but you can always call to check.
