Welcome to The Pier Life Blog


Pier Fishing - The Pier LifeWe want to start by saying welcome to The Pier Life blog! We are very excited to have the opportunity to share our experiences and knowledge of pier fishing with you. The good, the bad, the exciting, and even the ugly, we will be here every step of the way. Our goal is to provide you with the most information as possible to make your pier fishing experience the best it can be.

  You are probably wondering how The Pier Life brand came about. We wanted to come up with a brand that catered specifically to the pier fishing community. There are many different hobbies that revolve around the ocean, but none that offer the expertise that is involved exclusively with pier fishing. The pier fishing community is like family and tend to stick together. Sure you may be thinking “it's just fishing,” but pier fishing is extremely different than shoreline fishing or even fishing from a boat; it requires patience, skill, and strength.   Now it’s time to familiarize you with the masterminds behind the operation. The Pier Life consists of three partners, who coincidentally call each other family. A father, son, and daughter make up this incredible partnership. It is true that this family is close knit, but what makes this family remarkable is how well they work together. Of course there are ups and downs, but these arise with any business. Nevertheless, the positivity and consistent encouragement are the strings that keep this company tied together and conclusively produced this exclusive brand.   Zach - The Pier Life First and foremost there is Zach. If you need to know anything about pier fishing he is the man for the job. His love and passion of pier fishing is relentless and he has been fulfilling this hobby since he was just a boy. What seemed like an innocent interest quickly turned into a lifestyle and subsequently a thriving brand. The pier life all started as a simple idea that was mentioned while walking down the Gulf State Park Pier and now, well, the rest is history. Zach’s dedication to The Pier Life is a fulltime responsibility but he also plans to attend college in the fall.   Brittani - The Pier LifeIf you were wondering who is behind all of The Pier Life social networking and internet maintenance, then let me introduce you to Brittani. A recent college graduate (earning a Bachelors degree in Biology) Brittani has been working vigorously to bring The Pier Life brand to anyone and everyone that has access to the internet. She has been working in marketing for the last couple of years and now hopes she can promote a brand that everyone in the pier fishing community would like to be a part of.   And lastly, but of course definitely not least, we have Bob, the father of both Zach and Bob - The Pier  LifeBrittani. Bob has always loved pier fishing and enjoys spending time with his children while doing so. With the experience of owning two businesses under his belt, Bob strives and accomplishes success in everything he does. He has been happily married for 24 years and has three beautiful children. Working endlessly to get The Pier Life acknowledged, he hopes one day to retire on a white sandy beach, walking distance from a pier of course!   Enough about us!!
