Summary: 5/3/03 Water muddy from recent rain ... some baitfish (Jacksmelt) and small perch. 5/7/03 Water temp is the lowest I've seen - measured 50 degrees at the pier. Smoothhound sharks beginning to appear - saw the largest one I've ever seen - 40+" caught at foot of pier. 5/26/03 Pier closed weekdays for next several weeks for piling repairs. Water temps are back up to 54-56 degrees and many halibut are beginning to be caught. Lots of baitfish - primarily small jacksmelt and sardines. Still a good run of large (14-16") Barred surfperch.
