The pier is wide enough to walk between fishermen, Nice views. Shaded areas to sit in weather or sunshine.

Very open and a nice walk with kids and family. A few places where nails stick out, so be careful with little kids.

We walked out to the end of the pier and sat for a while. The wind was blowing and the shade of the gazebo made it great.

The pier is usually a great place to see locals and fish. But a bit crowded today as it was Saturday. Always fun and accommodating to folks with disabilities.

There is a lot of traffic at the pier but the view will not disappoint you. The public bathrooms were a hot mess - but it was at the end of the day and evidently the line is usually out the door

Nice view of the ocean. Has shaded areas to sit on the pier. Showers near and shaded areas to eat. Lots of people sitting under the pier for shade.

Big Sur, Not sure on license info but you can buy everything you need at the pier. The locals are friendly and will share bait type and whats hitting at the moment. The Hungry Detective

I would try calling the bait shop at the pier. As I recall, they post daily the top 3 fish that are being caught. I'm pretty sure they are aware of the seasonal trends.
