Fished a beautiful morning at Belmont Memorial Pier - sunny and calm. This trip I fished at end of pier. From 5:00 - 8:30 steady White Croaker aka Tomcod bite. Using hi/lo rig, fish caught with shrimp, anchovy and squid. A fisherman next to me, looking for Queenfish, caught several Tomcod on strips of Smelt.

I moved to midpier, caught and released a nice size Jacksmelt on shrimp. Lost something that was a decent size that hit on a whole squid (small about 3 inches) fished straight down. Fish went into some cover. I am under the impression it was a bass.

A few fisherman looking for Mackerel and Queenfish - got skunked.

I caught an interesting creature that clung to a piece of squid - a Brittle Star aka Brittle Starfish. Very interesting marine animal.

Good luck everyone!
