Headed to Huntington pier at 6 am on the incoming tide. I started off fishing a sabiki rig with a float with mackerel chunks, and caught a couple jacksmelt before and a little after the sun came up. I also got a baby bat ray and two large thornback guitarfish on the bottom hooks of the sabiki. There was a lot of baitfish in the water, mostly small-medium sardines, and I enjoyed pretty constant action. I put one out on a sliding bait rig, but got no love. Later in the day, around 10-11 am, some mackerel began to show up, some on the sabiki, and some more on the coltsniper. I ended the day at 11 with 5 large jacksmelt, 15 mackerel, and ~50 sardines.

Of note: The bait shop is still open.

Nice. Got to be some big shark with all that big bait in the water?! Maybe next month...
