Ventura & Santa Barbara County Piers
Port Hueneme Pier — Jacksmelt, sardines and mackerel lead the hit parade with a few perch inshore and an increasing number of bat rays. How To Get There: From Highway 1 take Hueneme Rd. west until it turns into Port. At Ventura Rd turn left and follow it to Surfside Dr. Turn left again and follow it to the park.
Ventura Pier — Walleye surfperch and queenfish are available inshore to mid-pier while sharks are found out at the end. Bat rays are mid-pier to the end. How To Get There: From Highway 101 take the Seaward Drive exit west to Harbor Drive, turn right and follow it to the pier.
Stearns Wharf — Frank, at Stearns Wharf Bait and Tackle, steady action on mackerel and sardines along with a few barred surfperch. Nothing much else. The crab action (spider crabs and rock crabs) continues to be strong. How To Get There: From Highway 101 take Castillo St. or State St. west to the beach and follow signs to the pier
Goleta Pier— The pier has been up and down with the mackerel coming and going. Small halibut and big perch are still available. Rockfish (mainly browns) are available by the pipe-reef but not too many people are fishing for them. How To Get There: From Highway 101 take the Hwy. 217/Airport exit. Follow it to Sandspit Rd. and the Goleta Beach Park turnoff. Follow this to the park and the pier.
Gaviota Pier —The pier has been pretty dead with sporadic visits by pelagics—sardines and mackerel but not much else. How To Get There: From Highway 101 simply take the Gaviota State Park turnoff.
