Upcoming Activity – Mmmmmmm Crab

Event:       Pack Activity for Pack 104
Description: Pack 104 Fishing and Crabbing Outing
Location:    Fort Baker – Moore Rd Pier Moore Rd Sausalito, CA 94965
When:     Saturday, August 1, 2015.
Additional information:  DIRECTIONS: Take Alexander Avenue off of Highway 101. It is the last exit before driving onto the Golden Gate Bridge going south, and the first exit after the vista point going north. Take Alexander Drive down the hill till you see Danes Drive and then, just before the tunnel, turn right onto Bunker Road and follow it down to the pier.
WHAT TO BRING: This can be a foggy area. Old records reported that the fog horn at nearby Point Bonito operated an average of 858 hours a year. So, bring some warm clothing just in case the fog does decide to settle in. There are NO facilities out there aside from portable bathrooms. So any snacks lunches or drinks (no running water) should be brought. There are no stores for a few miles aside from the cafe inside the Bay Area Discovery Museum, which you would probably have to pay the admission fee for. There are no benches so bringing chairs is a must.
If any one wants to bring fishing poles, we have seen people catch sturgeon, rockfish, herring, jacksmelt, halibut, and shark.
A couple of Crab nets will be provided, all the bait we will need, and a bucket and ice chest we use only for crabbing.
Bringing a five gallon bucket if you have one, or some other sort of vessel might be a good idea in case we catch a lot of crab. There are those who have caught as many as 36 in two hours, but we have also come home empty handed many times. Its fishing…
Life vests are suggested, The railing at the Fort Baker Pier is minimal and the water is cold and swift near the golden gate.
Bring a camera. The view is spectacular. We often see big boats coming in and out of the bay, and if it is clear there is a great view of San Francisco.
