The pier has been giving up as many Dungeness as the outer bay. One pier crabber had 5 keepers in the morning, as many as another boater had on a three day soak for 6 pots outside. The weather forecast for this weekend calls for wind, so the pier definitely would be the place I would choose.

Here's a much better video with actual sound of the current running past the pier from the tsunami on March 11, 2011. Thanks to Nathan Porter for this video, even though he made me realize that my camera is nothing but a Crackerjack prize.
Here's a different view of the tsunami at Dillon Beach. Looks at how much beach is exposed in the early part of the video and compare it to how much is covered at the end. It was doing that every 20 to 30 minutes. Spooky.

There are still a few Dungeness in the bay but not too many. Across the bay there are many crabs but few keepers
Surprisingly, the pier has been better. The best times are when the currents are slowest, so check the tide tables. A few surfperch and no word on leopards.
