We just started fishing and looking for some good fishing spots around the area here in Pinellas County - Palm Harbor / Clearwater / St. Petes.

Preferably in shore / near shore. Do not have a boat and not the greatest fishing equipment (walmart fishing rods)

We know of the St. Petes Pier fishing spots, but I've heard of someone else mentioning something near a place called Chassidy or cassidy bay / highway? I'm not sure which one, I tried googling, but had no luck. Was hoping someone could shed some light here. We are beginner fishers, so not looking for anything big. We do want to take a few home to cook up and eat

Maybe Caladesi although it isn't a hwy. A lot of people fish off of Dunedin beach road. You can fish there on the right side going towards the beach.

Caladesi sounds right, is it true the only way to get there is by boat? :-(

What about Tarpon...Also, I saw ppl fishing at Wall Spring Park several times, don't know what kind of fish...Pine Island is also a good spot where you don't need a boat.

The two fishing piers at Ft Desoto plus the 2 bridges on the causeway leading out there can be good spots.
The small pier at the southern end of Pass a Grille has given me good results.
Under and around the bridge at Johns Pass.
The parking area to the right (Southside)of the BayFront Pier ($3 parking)

You do need a boat to get to Caladessi Island. I never saw anyone actually fishing there but I have seen a lot of people fishing between what we called 'beer can island' (next to Caladessi) and Honeymoon Island, where the intercoastal and the gulf meet. Not a big fisherwoman but I think when the tide is going in or out. I know a lot of people fish off of Ballest Point pier too in S. Tampa

The causeway! That's the name for sure. Where is this?
