Pacifica Pier – Crab & Perch Report

Bit delayed by now, but my work weeks keep getting craaazier!  I got a north jetty report & a cute harbor seal story to go along with it… But that’ll have to wait!

So I went out to the Pacifica Pier to hang out with my dear of dad, and check up on how crabbing was out there.  First sign of life was around halfway down the pier:

Didn’t see any other fish pulled up.  Decent amount of people casting out hi-los and even one throwing a large kastmaster!  No luck with it while I was there.

Around 3/4 of the way down we ran into the first person with crab.   Continue reading Pacifica Pier – Crab & Perch Report

You don’t want to miss out, I’ll be posting pictures when I get a chance while I’m out on the water!

Getting into the swing of reporting, was out on the Ankeny Street again last Friday, 4/17/2015, out of Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, CA.

Bein’ a young’un I’ve never had the chance to fish for rock cod so early in the year before!  Exciting times.  I assume this means the conservation efforts have been working well & the fishery has recovered?  Promising to note that the ling limit has now been increased from 2 to 3!

Somewhat worried that there’s now a 5 black rock cod limit per person/bag though.  Wonder if those have been getting slammed too hard in the past few years?  If anyone has reasons, I’d love to hear them!  Just curious m’self :]

Anyhow, the forecast was for somewhat large swells, but not too much wind.  Looked nice in the harbor when I arrived around 7!

So I got home late Thursday night.  Started tying rigs late, and wound up pulling an all nighter…  But I made some awesome looking jigs!

Pacifica Pier and Half Moon Bay Pier Crabbing

Went out with some friends (and some kids) I used to work with at EA this past Saturday.  Goal was to bring home a bunch of dungeness for our families.  Kara had just gotten her ankle cut open recently so we were limited to easily accessible piers.  Wound up deciding Pacifica Pier would be our best bet and we all agreed to meet up around 3am to carpool out.

Got to the pier around 4am and gates seemed to already be open.  Not sure if they opened up at 12am like last weekend.  I heard that opening weekend they had a deal with the locals to have it open at 12am to deal with crowding.  /shrugs

Anyhow we parked and grabbed our gear and waddled off to try our luck.  Was pretty crowded this past weekend still
