yeah that pier is tough. fished it since 89. I am here all the time, i know, after all these years, the underwater topography of the entire area. lol.
but the pier not often. and usually its just shakers. i have caught keepers and big stripers from the shore nearby but not the pier. a couple sturgeon too but i don't usually fish for them. one year, there was a 15 foot dead sturgeon washed ashore there. and I've seen huge ones launch from 100's of yards out, so really know they are huge.
its also a pier to do some "pier trolling" but I never got a fish with a lure that way, but I have gotten them on bait when the current is so strong you let it "troll" in the current. also vertical jigging. but the best is the old fashioned bait chunking.
this past weekend I caught a shaker halibut from the shore there. twice. haha
