Location: Berkeley Pier
|Richmond, California for our So-Cal friends
I showed up at Ferry Point Pier about 4:25pm and it was NOT crowded. There were no herring also, as the previous day's run was over with people with an average (12) herring for a couple hours of net throwing. I gave out a bucket-and-half because I always keep some for friends but they could not come out and get them, so I dispensed them to a few fisherman (three of which knew) that only had a handful.
I fished using Pacific herring and a hi/lo surf-leader and only hooked into a single batray. A lot of crabs, thus fished an extra-long leader of about 6 feet.
That was it. A very peaceful evening of solitude.
