This old wharf sits on its mostly wooden pilings over a sandy bottom. However, because of its location near the bay entrance, and because of debris which has built up over the years under the pier, offerings include more than just sandy-shore species of fish. Here you might catch almost any type of fish that enters the bay. Most common are white croaker, several varieties of perch, jacksmelt and topsmelt, flatfish such as sand sole, sand dabs and starry flounder, smaller rockfish, sharks, rays and skates. This pier also offers excellent crabbing for both red crabs and rock crabs. You will also often bring up Dungeness crabs, but remember that it is illegal to keep these crabs in San Francisco Bay and San Pablo Bay. [http://www.go-california.com/Fort-Point-Pier/]

And crab too. This is a popular spot for crabbing.
And a boy caught starfishes! Wow!
