A pier (B Street Pier) was built in 1989, to replace an old damaged pier and hopefully draw fishing tourists to the harbor area of Crescent City. However, over the years, it was determine that the B Street Pier was only marginally satisfactory as a fishing pier. While fishing was possible, it was only as average fishing location, better locations exist. However during the same period, to the surprise of the town, it was realized that there was a surprising supply of dungeness crabs at the pier site. That situation remains until today. Daily, you will find people on B Street Pier dropping their crab rings off the pier and catching a crab dinner.
