Has anyone had any luck yet at either Montrose or Belmont Harbor?

I was out there with a buddy last Saturday (12/30), and we got skunked at Montrose. Not even any dink perch, and no marks whatsoever on the Vex. Fishing around pier D, and then moving all over trying to find anything. No luck.

We also fished Belmont and hooked into a great trout but we lost him at the hole. Caught him on the jigging pole on ultralight tackle, 2 lb line and tiny little tungsten fiska targeting perch. It was a real tough loss. After that, nothing. No perch to be found anywhere, no marks all day and we were moving all around the harbor.

Would love to hear how others are doing in the north side harbors. I was very surprised we couldn't find ANY perch.

All the best,

was there today(montrose) found some thin spots and 10" in others. Diversey was solid. Not great size perch at either, Navy was best.
