    I’m not really the person to answer this but I would say the jetty’s and maybe sunset cliffs.

    You can catch them in lots of areas in MB. Just look for rocky areas with at least a decent drop in depth. If you cast out 25 yards and notice that your bait sinks down a ways, then you are at a potential good spot. Find the edge of the rocks (at the bottom of drop off) and you’ll be bound to catch something soon enough. I find that making shorter casts into the rocks will more than often catch the dinks. Deeper rocky areas that I described will have the bigger fish. At least that’s what I’ve noticed in Mission Bay. Anyone feel free to add on or suggest something slight different since I’m no expert, just learning as I go. I believe that jetties are probably the best bet, but I never fish the jetties. Werfless would have info on that for sure.

    Yeah, the RF are there, not as consistent as sculpin, but they are there. JoshJ123 has good advice...
