I went fishing at the Monterey Wharf # 2 pier on Sunday. I fished from 9 am to 3 pm. The day started out great. Incoming tide in the morning and I caught 7 pacific mackerel really fast in the morning. I also lost two mackerel to seals. But then around 10 in the morning the bite shut off. I was fishing near the end of the pier, so moved out to where there were no rails and tried for mackerel and perch there. No other fish caught. One other angler caught a jacksmelt, and some anchovies were caught on Sibiki rigs. After a good start it ended up being a slow day. That is a tough pier to fish. At least I didn’t get skunked.
