if it's just sharks you want... go ahead and throw some squid off of san mateo bridge pier (west bay side)

Most of them in the bay will work. You can get them from some ocean piers but it would be more work.

squid ::) hang on tight, ray is going to hit it first ;D
Throw a live chovies, mack, or dines if you can get them, squid works better for the leopard, but the rays always gets it first >:( ;D
Unless you can hop on a boat and head out into the deeper channel, then your set for some sharkies ;D
