Cloudy overcast morning at the pier. Very few fisherman. Fishing at midpoint of pier I caught and released a Thornback ray, Spanish Mackerel, Cabezon, and some Jacksmelt. No Pacific Mackerel around. Used shrimp, anchovy and squid for bait.

Interesting "almost catch" was a reddish Octopus that went after cut anchovy. It was dead weight until it reached the surface and then it jetted back into the depths.

Good luck!
