Is there a trick to fishing off the skyway pier in tampa?

Ive heard that fishing off this pier is excellent. However, i went fishing there last night and lost at least 5 hooks with leader lines from getting caught on things. I did bring up some coral, trash, rocks, and old reels. But i was wondering if anyone knew if certain spots on the pier were better than others. We went to the south side pier if that helps.
