from a pier. I've detailed in my book how I caught both from the Newport Pier in the '60s. Have any of you caught either from Newport or different piers?

Ken,

Never have seen a hake, but I have seen some commercial fishermen in the area bring up some sablefish aka black cod. They usually fish them in big traps 10 to 20 miles offshore in around 200 to 400 fathoms.

located near submarine canyons—primarily Newport. Balboa, Redondo and Monterey Wharf #2. I caught them on two occasions back in the early '60s when I was a Newport pier rat. I also caught several hake and though I've taken them while fishing for rockcod out of Santa Cruz, and salmon fishing out of Fort Bragg, I haven't caught any from any other piers. However, I believe people reported catching some at Pacifica and I would think both the Monterey Wharf #2 and Santa Cruz would see a few. But, I could be wrong.

By the way, all the hake I caught at Newport were in the very early hours, i.e., 4-5 A.M. Since the pier restricted the hours (it was once open 24 hours day) it might make it a little hard to see another caught.

Saw a hake caught from shore near the Navarro River about 15 years ago. It was huge.
