I am headed to Goleta pier this weekend with the family and wanted to get some tips on tackle.
Fished the surf plenty of times from Malibu to Ventura but this will be my first try at fishing a pier and I wanted to get the family and kids on some fish.
Any tips on tackle, hook size, weights, bait is welcome and most appreciated.

Fish all along the shore for Halibut both sides of pier. Or go out toward the mid way and outward there is a underwater pipe covered in kelp going out a few hundred yards off the end
it’s on the north/west side of pier. Typical kelp dwellers

    water is realllly dirty right now currrent is ripping with the winds, but youll want to have rigs on the bottom with squid most likely will get stingrays. with kids you gotta have a sabiki rig for them for some smelt and maybe macks. i keep getting skunked out there off beach but it will be a fun day.
