Description

The pier is located a short distance away from the Sister Islands and fronts some of the deeper water in this part of San Pablo Bay. Pilings show little growth of mussel but the bottom here is mud and grass and there seems to be a lot of natural food. Inshore, the shoreline is covered with rocks and at times there is some fishing for perch but it seems only fair. More productive is the water to the left of the pier about half way to three quarters of the way out. This is a good area for kingfish (white croaker), flounder, striped bass, sharks, skates and bat ray. The most heavily fished area is the t-shaped end of the 190-foot-long pier; this is the premier spot for sturgeon.
