|No, the concrete pier is in the same location as the wooden pier. At first I thought maybe the bottom had been messed up or the concrete pilings did not have as much growth as the wood but given the rocks that surround the pier the fish should still be there.
To be honest I haven't really figured out why the figures are low. Of course one reason the fish per hour figures are somewhat lower is that you rarely encounter the schooling pelagic species like herring or jacksmelt that can run up the fish per hour figures.Nevertheless, the numbers are still low.
I had a couple of years when I caught large numbers of both kelp greenling and rock greenling but those years were the exception rather than the rule. Usually it's a couple of striped seaperch, a few greenling (mainly kelp greenling), c couple of rockfish (blue, black, grass) and maybe a couple of cabezon. I have encountered a few lingcod but you've got to be lucky to see one.
