I was at a beach below Pigeon Point today and there must have been 3-4 hundred pelicans diving and eating something, I wasn't sure what till they started rolling up on the beach by the hundreds. I collected about 15 to use for bait but I should have collected a few hundred to eat. I didn't know they were anchovies till I got home and identified them by pics. I took pics but they are on my phone. If there is the bait that closes in are their fish nearby usually? I'm still new to this and learning. so far in the last few weeks, I've caught several over 1 lb perch, a 17-inch kelp greenling, and a few rock cod keepers, but I've never caught a bass.

The Anchovies are working their way to and into SF bay they show up every spring along with the Herring. Stripers are up river spawning but start back down into the bay to feast on the anchovies and herring heading out to the Ocean :)
