I find the pier to be one of the best places to fish in the summer at night time. I will probably start back fishing there more in December. I usually go up Early in the day and stay untill some time during the morning the next day, usually around 1 or 2am depending on how the fishing is going and what the weather is like. I remember I went fishing there last December on Christmas day and there were two seven gillers caught. There is always barracouta around at the pier and summer and they can be fun on a light rod with a wire trace.
