    Santa Cruz, Saturday 09.

    I had planned to fish the Wharf that same day as well but after looking at the tides and swell, I did not go. The tide was going out all day and dropped to -1.1ft from 5ft or so, lots of movement. Also swells were forecast to be big (relatively), lots more movement. In my limited experience...

    Plan to catch some baits this weekend

    San Leandro Marina drama?
