IVE only fished there a few times and was wondering if its worth walking way down towards the end.I have never caught a striper or hali fishing around the first bend.

i've caught a pretty good striper at the first bend before. but there are a lot more bat rays than anything

I assume you know where the launch is and have seen where to walk out to the end. Go ALL the way to the end, around that first corner the the peak where it jets out to the opening by the ships(did that make sense??). The water is from 30-50 feet deep right there, only 10 yards or so from the rocks. Lots of fish hold there. Shark city at times! Lots of rays, true. Midshipmen or sardine seems to cut down on the ray attention. Halis? Not sure. I think they are out more on the flats. Striper hold there, though.

Havent been there for a few months, but did catch a 5 1/2 ft leopard, two hali's barely legal hali's. Saw plenty of butts and stripers caught there.

Report -

I was there on Saturday. One pull down, nothing else. Pretty dead. One other boat; 5-6 fishermen on shore. Did not see any fish caught during the 4 hours I was out there.

If you fish off the beach when you first start coming down the walk way you can land some MONSTER rays and some good sized skates there. I landed a 65 lb ray there the other day using whole anchovies. If you want the bigger sharks go around the first turn and keep going through the fence where the concrete walkway ends. Go down for a bit that's where the deep water is. There's also a lot of smelt and the occasional mackeral if you hang a couple of worms under a bobber. There's also some perch there, just cast your line out about 6-8 ft. They tend to swim amoung the rocks so expect to get hung up occasionaly. Good sized butts haven't been seen there in a while and it's still a little early I think for the stripers in the area. Hope this helps

Thinking about heading to Alameda for the first time to take my dad out. I heard there are lots of sharks and rays which are cool with me. Besides the basic sliding sinker steel leader rig, what else should i bring? ANy other species to target, and if so, how? Thanks guys

Also, how do you get there?

Bring a warm jacket or sweater cause it gets really windy over there. Rockwall is located right next to Encinal high school in Alameda. There is a long driveway just to the right of the school. If your going to fast you may miss it. As of now sharks and rays are your best bet. Not much else out there.
