    I've not heard of them being caught from a pier. We caught them trolling in Santa Barbara channel years and years and years ago. ;D Ugh... that makes me sound and feel really old.

    I would jump on a 3/4 or 1/2 day boat out of santa monica,or L.A. they will put you on a barry . you could try on a pier but you will have a tuff time getting it up.with out a pier net. its pretty hard to catch anything besides mackeral,lizard fish ,and tom cod.off of all those piers down there. :P

    live bait will work for the piet and you can rig
    it the same as as you would for fishing for salmon.
    tie a wieght to the end of your line and cast as far
    as you can throw it out, then clip a large swivel onto
    the line out so it can slide on it and just below the
    swivel attach the a large bobber you can see to that will
    be a 6/10' leader with the bait at the end...
    clip this on the main line and let slide out to the water
    and wait for mr toothy to get it.....
    works with dead bait too.....goood luck

    check it out. Hope this helps.

    i want to catch  barracude

    hey i want to catch barracuda from venice pier C.A....
    someone told me to put sizw 1/0 live bait hook with a short wire leader(30 lbs test) on 25 lbs. test line with no weight... put any small live bait on there and cast it out,, leave drag loose till the fish swims down and close..

    Is THIS A GOOD WAY??
