Hermosa Pier 9-12

#1
Well I showed up at the pier around 9am this morning hoping to catch some mackerel to stock up on bait for a couple future outings. It wasn’t to be. I ended up catching two but otherwise I had great fishing on calico bass. I ended up with 13 calico and one sand bass. One calico was very close to being a keeper. So even though I didn’t accomplish my goal a had a lot of fun.

Your right about the bass. There is one small spot of structure of the pier where they seem to hold. The only way I found out about it was by being hung up on it several times.
What a cool discover! I often wonder if there is really more variety available at these piers but the combination of the limited fishing area combine with the fact that most people pick a spot and don't move means the same fish are caught over and over again.

Thanks for the report!

There is only one particular section I can think of. Glad you found a section that works. Sometimes it's worth taking a risk.
