Oceanside Harbor Pier, 5/7


Well-Known Member
Stopped here on the way down to Shelter Island as I'd never been here and noticed a sign that directed the way to a "fishing pier". This harbor seems odd in that
there are "no fishing" signs posted just about everywhere I looked with the exception of the pier, although I only noticed the area about 200 feet on either side of the pier entrance. Only one fisherman on the pier and he said fishing had been slow with only one medium octopus which he had released. The sea lions were doing something further out, looked like somebody had thrown something to them but they were beating and slapping it and slowly pulling it apart to eat. No idea what it was... Maybe it was a batray? It looked vaguely like a frisbee. Bad experiences in the past with sea-lions so decided this wasn't the place for me to fish.
