View Full Version : Pt. Pinole

I took a jog around Pt. Pinole the other day and noticed a few fishermen fishing off the shore. I know they're in the main bay and Pt. Pinole's not that far. Unfortunately I didn't stop by those guys to check since I didn't want to ruin my workout. Anyone knows if the stripers arrived around this area yet?

early spring is usually the best bite for stripers off the point pinole pier. But you can get them year roundI always want to fish there but I usually decide to go elsewhere since you have to fish around the schedule of the shuttle bus

I usually park at the county jail and hike over the rail road. Not bad if you don't mind the walk.

It's not too far from the parking lot. I'd say perhaps a 10-15 minutes of walking through the picnic trail. You can pretty much fish once you're in the vicinity of water.

I try to stay as far away as possible from the left though since it's too close to the waste fields. ;)

launched at Rodeo on Tuesday and trolled along the shore going toward Pinole, dad got a hit near what looks like a broken down bridge. That stripper made the reel scream for a good 5 seconds and started to come in. It got pretty close to the boat and what do you know it comes unhooked. Didn't even see much of the fish, except a glimpse >:( :'(
