Hey Everyone,

I am heading down to Pismo and the dunes, anyone have any suggestions on whats in the water and where. I don't care what I catch as long as I catch something.

Thanks everyone

Just saw your post. You didn't say if you will be fishing from shore, or from a boat. If you are shore fishing, you're best bet will be to try for surf perch. I don't fish the Pismo area, but do pretty well on most any of the beaches from Morro Bay, to Cayucos. Use fairly light gear, (8-10lb test line) and motor oil colored rubber grubs. You don't have to cast very far out, as the fish are usually in very close.

You might want to think about taking one of the party boats out of Avilla (Port San Luis), or Morro Bay. The rockfish are still on a hot bite, and you shouldn't have any trouble catching your limit.
