California Fishing
Pier Fishing

Pier Fishing, like fishing in general, is more art than science. You’ve got to find the right pier, the right rig, you’ve got to park, and maybe the most over-looked part of the equation, you’ve got to have the right fishermen to share space with. After all, you may like the angler set up next to you but if the fish don’t then you both will pay the price.

Here’s a look at a few piers in Southern California, the people who fish off of them and a look at how to rig to catch the right fish for Southern California. Click on any of the following links for a comprehensive look at the pier of your choice:
