FYI the sheriff's department issued tickets to netters under the pier yesterday. There is a 150 foot exclusion area around the pier. it is not the pier who is enforcing this but the sheriff.

April is gone but conditions are not much better....the water has started to clear up and visibility is some what better, but still not ideal...wind out of the north and chilly...got some good swells

yesterdays catch included spanish, reds, and hardtails

Sunday, May 01, 2005

Bye Bye April

May is here and right now it doesn't look much better....yesterday's horrible conditions severely cut down on the number of fishermen and the only reported catches were spanish and hard tails. Right now we have a cold north wind but is susposed to shift to the southeast sometime today. When this happens and if the water clears up fishing will improve

FYI this April produced the most rain ever recorded in a 30 day period ever. its gotta change sometime
