Yeah, in the last ten days or so but not much else. A few kings here and there (none yesterday from 5:30 am to noon). And even the bait mentioned has been hit or miss. It all boils down to being there at the right time which is EXTREMELY unpredictable!
Not saying you're wrong at all!! Come on out and give it a try! They say "you can't win if you don't play" so I'll keep going as often as I can. It's the unpredictability that keeps me going! Pier fishing always changes from day to day as well as minute to minute. The catches you mentioned in your first post are truly amazing feats from a pier. I'd give anything to be on the other end of the rod with any of those fish!!
