    Surprisingly no. I remember last year when I would catch several and was not impressed...now that I want to catch them for bait, they are harder to find! SInfrom what I hear is always a good bet

    Oside pier always has many almost every night. Glow sticks always do the trick there.

    I’ve always had bigger sizing from OB, but better volume from SI when the pier is not jammed with people

    Haven't been in a few weeks to ob pier. Last time, caught around 30 in an hour after a full day at MB. Using glow stick to float a 1.5-2ft leader. Squid to start the catch and switch to fresh cut up mackerel for bait. They come by at certain windows and then nothing the rest of the time.

    I've seen an older dude rig up 10 hooks on a 8-10ft leader with bottom weight and styrofoam float pull up 10 macs every cast. Small sized one, but a true wonder to see him cast out the rig. This happened around June.

    I went out wednesday night, it seems the pattern at oceanside seems to be exclusively at night right now, starting around 7. caught over 50 at the end of the pier up until 10 when the tide moved out.
