Classic youtube generation not knowing thier head from thier ass from a calico bass. Glad I'm a few generations before this.
Don’t know if that’s more of this guy is an idiot I’m general or not, the YouTube generation has seen plenty on bsb. Frankly because calling a Black Sea bass a calico bass is more like an image of kooks to them.

It’s like watching a kid kill a 130lber on a spinning reel with 80lb to 80lb in seven minutes! I can’t say I’ve come close to that. At least 15 minutes off on even heavier gear.

The piers attract the crowd that either doesn't give a shit or are completely ignorant of the rules.Wouldn't hurt my feelings at all if they just banned fishing from them permanently.

    Ban the pier along with the jetties and rocks/off the cliffs, A lot of damage is done fishing off the rocks also.

    Fishing dock in Newport harbor. Caught 21 inch halibut.. got hook out and safely released. Literally everyone was shocked. About an hour later a sheriff boat showed up and they checked licenses. The guy sitting close to the stairs pushed his bag of 6 inch fish under the stairs. I so wanted to say something. But I liked that dock and knew most of the people there. Certainly not a great crowd but I fished it regularly

    I thought fishing from public piers was legal without a license. Good thing I have a license......and a boat. lol

    +1, LB jetty is getting its annual smattering of graffiti and chumps calling the rocks there home just fishing and taking up air, BAN IT or at least require a license!
