I hit the pier at about 7am prior to the Chart House GTG, to get some bait. The pier itself was not crowded, in fact we had the end to our selves until about 1pm.

Red tide was evident all day. Bait was available all day, at least until 4pm, when I headed to the Charthouse. I used a size 12 sabiki tipped with shrimp and had a steady bite by 8-12" mackerel about 30 feet out from the pier. In close to the pilings 4-6" smelt could be had on the same rig, no takers on the live bait rigs though, just crab attacks. (Gilled and gutted with no tail racking).

The pier is about to go off, all we need is a couple of days of clear water. I'm guessing next weekend.

there although most were small. She says the kayakers are reporting LOTS of small WSB in the area. Hope if they're caught they're returned.

The macs were thick..probably would have been crazy if not for the red tide. A father and son team next to me caught a few baby WSB, they did not know anything about the fish, but let them go so they could come back next year and catch them when they got bigger.

I was happy they did not get called a shiner and get pinned on as bait.
