Gone fishin’ …

The pier at the Martinez Marina is a popular fishing spot, as evidenced by crowds on the west end this week. Many sturgeon as tall as men have been caught from the pier, with the most successful fishing times one hour before and one hour after high and low tides (see page 3 for a tidal chart). A fishing license isn’t necessary when angling non-commercially from public piers in California, so the sport is a fun and inexpensive pastime for folks of all ages. Send in pictures and video of your latest catches for inclusion in the Martinez Tribune; email them to admin@martineztribune.com. (JOHN GRUBKA / Courtesy)
