    Hi,

    I recently went to the Embarcadero Pier today and although it both raining and windy, it was totally worth it today. I caught several spotted and calico bass (~ 7 to 8 inches, not legal), needle fish, and this fish here (see picture). I don't know what kind of fish this is, but I caught it with shrimp and has two long teeth on the upper part of it's mouth. Also, I apologize for the way I was holding the fish as it was really windy when I caught it - the pole fell to the ground as I laid it at an angle against the railing. It looks like some sort of croaker, but I may be wrong. Any inputs are greatly appreciated!

    Oliver
