The Goleta Slough has been fished for smelt to be used as bait for pier and shore anglers. There has also been a few mullet and halibut caught as well. It is important to note that these closures also prohibit swimming, wading,and kayaking in the Slough as well.

Aebleskiver, not Aebelskiver, appears to be the correct spelling ...

Just a minor correction - the term 'snagging' refers to hooking a fish in the body and not in the mouth. The better term is 'caught'. The definition of the term angling refers to the fish voluntarily taking the hook by mouth. Although snagging is not illegal (in this circumstance) ethical anglers generally release snagged fish (except for baitfish) if they are otherwise in good condition.

Has anyone checked to see if the tang part of the lock has beern installed backwards i.e. with the beveled side outwards? If so then any credit card can be slipped between the door jamb and the lock causing it to open.

I realize that this is a rather late response but it now does appear that the MLPA process, or at least the Blue Ribbon Task Force's handling, is suspect:

Wingnut -

This "aging layabout" has donated nearly 1900 hours of volunteer service to Goleta Pier since 2006 ... I consider it time well spent and not wasted at all. The Pier community is a wonderful mix of interesting and delightful people, many of whom have been visiting the Pier for decades.

I'm sure you would agree - please take the time to visit when the Center is open (Thurs - Sun, 11am-4pm.) Grab one of the outside stools and let's talk.

Looking forward to meeting you (and anyone else who is interested).

Excuse me ... if I read it correctly it says "several hundred pounds of ammunition". That's pounds not rounds.

Regulars at Goleta Beach were gifted with an unopened case of Budweiser Millennium beer this week which was bottled (according to the label) in November 1999!

All agreed it had retained its original carbonation and quality and was highly appreciated. Too bad we didn't think to check its value before we indulged :)
