    San Clemente Pier 11-28 Bass, Wrasse, Macks and Jacks

    Got to San Clemente Pier around 5:30AM. My girlfriend and I split up. She stayed inshore, and I went to the end. Morning bite was good. Most productive rig was a high low rig. I rigged the top hook with 1/3 of a live blood worm and the bottom hook with a piece of cut shrimp. I fairly quickly...

    Finding live anchovies

    I've been fishing the Southern California piers for a little over 6 months now and I have yet to encounter anchovies. Do they come around any of the piers in Southern California? Are they a significantly better live bait than smelt or sardines?

    San Clemente 11/22

    Interesting wouldn't have thought to try that but will definitely give it a go the next time sardines are around at that pier.

    San Clemente 11/22

    First time fishing at San Clemente Pier. Arrived around 5:30AM. Parking is close and very reasonable. They don't start charging for parking until 10AM but you can pay as soon as you arrive. Went down to the end of the pier and there were already the beginnings of what would be a large crew of...

    Bolsa Chica Inlet 11-14, HB Pier 11-15

    It is really tasty. Crispy, salty. I also fried a couple small mackerel and they were just as good. Slightly different because you can't eat the whole fish but the strips of fried mackerel come off the bone and are really tasty! Is your profile picture you looking at a large planted aquarium? I...

    Bolsa Chica Inlet 11-14, HB Pier 11-15

    Hit the Bolsa Chica inlet on Saturday with my brother inlaw. Big surf redirected us from the Newport Jetty towards a safer spot. I fished from 7AM -1PM. My brother in law joined me around 8:30AM. Between the two of us we fished, jerk baits (calissa 110mm sardine color and smaller lucky craft...

    Thinking about targeting squid at Newport Jetty. Any tips?

    My brother in law and I will hit the Newport Jetty tomorrow morning. I want to bring a live well and try to catch some live bait and I'm thinking about going for squid with those sabiki style squid jigs. Any tips from people that have caught them before? Is it worth trying to target them when...

    Friday (11/6), Sunday (11/8), Monday (11/9) at HB Pier

    Got to the pier early morning on Friday at about 6AM. Started in-shore but could not get any bites on a high low rig with Berkeley Gulp on one hook and a salt cured ghost shrimp on the other. Moved to the north side of the pier caddy corner to the restrooms. I started fishing a sabiki to get...

    Fishing Calendars

    I downloaded the Fishing Calendar App and I like the interface. It seems very intuitive and elegantly combines a few major factors and spells out specifically what days and what time windows in those days will be good for fishing. Of course all this only matters if the recommendations actually...
