There were schools of bait fish surrounding the end of the pier. Mackerel albeit small ones were present but they were not actively biting. I caught a several small mackerel using sabiki and also using a 1/4 2/0 Big Hammer Jig Head on a Big Hammer 3" Swimbait. Majority of mackerel caught on the sabiki. Towards the afternoon I saw someone catch a bat ray at the end. Ended up the day trying to fish the surf area and caught 2 yellow fin croakers (one small and one fairly larger size).

Note: Surfers do not care to be within casting distance of the pier. They will proudly give you the middle finger.
