    The pier was damaged this morning by the big waves and king tide. Closed indefinitely, lots of wooden debris on the beach. The tide swept up about 10-15 ft onto newport ave. Also a few days ago the porch of the Inn at Sunset cliffs collapsed from the waves.

    I wouldn't advise fishing anywhere along the cliffs and beachs of OB/sunset cliffs during the big tide of the day (currently in the AM) . The waves were chaotic last night on a 3ft high tide, i don't want to see what it was like on the 6ft this morning..

    Looks like more than a few sections damaged ahead of the cafe

    I drove down to LJ this morning thinking I could sneak past the waves in between sets... said nope faster then you could get off and went back to bed. Mission Bay is starting to look a pretty milky in some areas too.

    Hahahaha. My thumb is still really messed up from fishing after rain weeks ago, I learned my lesson to never go out there again in conditions like this. I hope everyone thinks twice about fishing after rain, MRSA is no joke.

    What's a little MRSA when it comes to possibly catching the fish of a lifetime...

    That could be ironic, catch the fish of a lifetime and it ends up taking you out....
