Hi guys I was wondering if that jetty by Cavalo Point / Fort Baker is considered a public jetty. My friend doesn’t have a license this year and isn’t interested in paying $50 for it to expire in a few months. Thank you!

Pretty sure the only place you can fish without a license is a public pier. A jetty wouldn’t count.

I hear ya on not wanting to drop nearly $50 if it’ll expire at the end of December. However if your friend was going to be out there fishing and crabbing pretty regularly— especially crabbing— it could pay for itself with just half a daily limit of dungeness.

Yeah I'm pretty sure you have to have a license to fish there....I know the red crab fishing off of fort baker/fort point has been pretty good though.

I'd look up the regs before I trusted anyone with "pretty sure" help.



I have fished Fort Baker Jetty for many years and the DFW along with the NPS consider it a public breakwater where no license is required. Just make sure you fish where you have water on two sides (the Bay and the marina). If you fish from the parking lot or the ledge, for example, you will need a license.

Thank you songslinger! I’ve read the regulation pdf file and that’s what I figured but was not too sure.

Our experts usually know the answers.

There's also an excellent review of the DF&W regulations on the top of the "Off Topic" Page.
