Would you like to go fishing but don't have a boat? Try your luck at one of Minnesota's 200-plus fishing piers and on-shore platforms. These piers and platforms are in urban and rural areas throughout the state, on everything from small rivers to large lakes.
Most fishing piers and shorefishing sites have protective railings or edges around them. The accessibility of nearby parking areas and the paths leading to the piers and platforms vary from site to site.
