Anglers will again get a chance to go shark fishing from the Gulf State Park Pier in Gulf Shores. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has announced six new dates for managed shark fishing at the pier in August. The octagon on the south end of the pier will be set up for shark fishing only from 7pm-7am on August 12, 14, 19, 21, 26 and 28.
The octagon will close to routine use 30 minutes prior to these events, and reopen to routine use 30 minutes following them. During the events, the octagon area of the pier will be designated for the exclusive use of participating anglers and their designated assistants. The remainder of the pier will be open to anglers and other pier guests as normal.
Registration for the shark-fishing events is ongoing and anglers will continue to be selected in the order in which applications are received.Â
