sharks and perch. Although rare, sturgeon, barracuda and bonito frequent the

winter, Dungeness crab, which are not available elsewhere in the Bay Area, are
abundant off the pier; in the spring, catch perch at Linda Mar Bay; in the fall,
go rock fishing off Pedro Point.
Scuba Diving: Linda Mar Beach is an intermediate-to-advanced beach entry
