Are there enough people in the area to have an official club?

Probably not, at least on this board, but there are a number of people that fish the jetties, piers, beaches and rocks with some form of regularity.

From what I remember, the Eureka area anglers are a secretive bunch of folks. There's plenty of them around, but they don't like to talk too much about fishing. They do lurk on the PFIC message boards. I had total strangers calling me Clayman on the jetties on multiple occasions.

The jetties are fun, just gotta hope the weather cooperates enough

There's a few within the Bay. Del Norte Street Pier, Commercial Street Dock (aka Englund Marine), Adorni Center, and Eureka Municipal Wharf. I've only fished/crabbed on the former two. I've had a few good trips on the piers there for sharks and crabs, but the strong tidal currents in the channels can make fishing difficult. If there's a bunch of eelgrass floating around to get caught on your line, then forget it.

If you buy Ken Jones' "Pier Fishing in California" book, it has details on every pier in the State, along with loads of other good info. Highly recommended.

If you really want to fish a pier go to the trinidad pier. if the tide is incoming or flat and the swell is below 7ft and the vis is decent hit the trinidad pier up at night. Last time I went I caught a bunch of little rockfish. but that was almost a month ago. the bigger guys should have moved in hopefully.

You just got to get versatile, honestly. You got to find your spots on the rocks in trindad, where to throw swimbaits for halibut on the years they come in good, crack the jetties, and when and where to fish for perch. Learn the rivers and you can fish year round.

yeah i usually crab of the adorni or commercial street pier, only checked out the del norte street pier once but i didnt fish it. I was fishing trinidad pier yesterday evening for about an hour, really low tide, was fishing mainly right under the pier and around the 2 rocks to the north. got a couple small bites, ended up landing a small grassy and a couple little kelp greenlings.

was fishing plastics at first, then switched to herring and squid cause the water was murk.

went to the north jetti today to throw some plastics, was greeted by a very high tide and discovered i forgot my waders and rubber boots so i couldnt get out to the jetti. there was a group poke poling and another couple fishing. threw a couple casts near the coast guard for a small greenling. itchin for the water to warm up and the boat season to begin

Long term forecast is look like a break in the weather late next week with quiet seas. Time to dig-out the black label herring, 6/0 octopus, wire leaders and sharpen the gaff for the 1st.Anyone else planning fishing the ling opener next friday?

we went out it was bad. Couldnt go much farther than the end of the parking lot because the waves were crashing over the jetty. All we got was a 17 inch greenling.
