Location: Berkeley Pier
|A brief report report before 2018. Trying for sturgeon but it wasn’t meant to be. In fact none came over the rail while I was there and I was there 9-5. There was reportedly one miniscule green that was pulled on deck prior to my arrival. The monumental days of fishing that happened from apparently the 14th through the 17th of December are over. And that was a phenomenon for McNears, a record amount of keepers.
Pretty quiet out there if you go now save some smallish leopard sharks and maybe a bass or two. I got the one 21.5” fat striper pictured below (measured by CDFW census Zach). I taped it at 21. Caught at 3pm.
ghost shrimp and store herring for bait.
