Yes, fishing is permitted off of Bournemouth Pier. You can expect to catch a range of species depending on time of year, including mackerel, garfish, bream, scad, smoothounds and dog fish.
Bournemouth Pier can get busy, especially during the summer months, so it is recommended to fish during the early morning or evening. An incoming tide is also thought to be best.
There is a charge to fish from the pier. Prices can be found on the Bournemouth website.
