Hi all,
Just curious if anyone knows what the perch bite has been like near Manresa as of late? I've been getting the itch to get in the water lately and was hoping to go this weekend. Also, if anyone has any other good location suggestions, I am willing to drive anywhere from Santa Cruz to Monterey. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I ended up going out to Manresa on Saturday. Caught 8 small to midsized perch on motor oil grubs. Definitely, smaller and fewer fish out there than the last time I went out (July). I've been reading all kinds of mixed opinions (spanning the entire course of a year) of when perch fishing is supposed to be hot. Could someone please tell me the peak and off seasons for barred surf perch and help me cut through the confusion? Thanks.
