Cayucos Pier

While on an overnight trip to Morro Bay, CA to go on a bike tour, it rained the first day so I decided to drive 7 miles up the coast to Cayucos and check out the Cayucos Pier.

It is a small pier but better maintained than any of the other piers I have been on in California. There were only three people fishing off the end of pier and they did not speak much English but fishermen can communicate with each other regardless of a language barrier.

They informed me that they usually caught Mackerel and Smelt and did not really try for any other species, though Shovel nose Sharks and Bat Rays are common.

This pier is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from my house so I plan to fish up there in the next week or two.
