Check it:

You can legally fish or crab without a license at Torpedo Wharf at the west end of Crissy Field. Look for posted regulations.”

The Happy Jumping Sea Lions of San Francisco Bay

Wasn’t sure what this critter was at first, but it sure seemed happy jumping around by the weekend anglers at Piers 30 / 32, site of the recent AVP Pro Beach Volleyball event.

Thought it could have been a dolphin. Oh well, maybe next time.

Our only wish, to catch a fish, so juicy sweet. Click to expand:

License-Free Crabbing Under the Golden Gate Bridge at the Presidio’s Torpedo Wharf

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Here’s what you do – you get your stuff, head on over to the Presidio‘s Torpedo Wharf (fka the U.S. Navy Pier, fka the Fort Point Mine Depot) then go get yourself some Rock Crab (Cancer Aniennarius). License? You don’t need no stinking license.

Here’s your checklist. But make sure you don’t pick up any Dungeness Crab ”by mistake.” And be on the lookout for freighters off-loading people from other countries sans documentation. That happened a bit sometimes at the Torpedo, before 9-11.

Join in the fun – strangers welcomed with open arms. There’s enough crab and fish for all:
