    It's been closed for many years, it will probably never open again, talk about turning it into a ferry terminal.

    A guy named Jason C. caught the biggest starry I've ever seen off Santa Cruz, it was as big as a large halibut, and I believe it was released!

    According to a report issued by Harold George Orcutt :The Life History of the Starry Flounder Platichthys stellatus (Pallas) 1950 for the Ca DFG, the starry flounder come into the SF Bay waterways and the Delta to spawn during the period from November through February.

    They are fun to catch, but the report indicates there are more of them to be found in the waters of the SF Bay than the more remote (from the Pacific) Delta. So your asking for spots to fish in the Bay area makes more sense when targeting these fish.

    You might want to check out the Pier Fishing In California site for places to catch these fish in the bay.

    better fishing in brackish water. Biggest one I ever caught was off Alameda Naval Air. My dad was a marine so we fished there a lot.

    My only fishing experience in SF bay proper is fishing the Fort Baker pier and surrounding areas. But I have caught quite a few Starry Flounder soaking bait off my boat in the Rio Vista area during December and January over the years. Oft times we are anchored within casting distance from the Sandy Beach County Park shoreline. So I don't see why one couldn't be caught fishing from the bank.
