    If you enjoy surf perch fishing get out and have some fun!!! It's time.

    whered you go? Im takin the kids and GF down to pacific grove this weekend 1/18-1/20 and Ive never fished the area before - Im pretty comfortable up around the Bay Area, HMB, Pt Reyes and Bodega but never really go that far south. Itll be the first time these kids have fished in the ocean and Id really like to show them some surf fishing in addition to hanging out on a pier - I could really use some help on good accessible and family friendly surf fishing spots, thanks! PM if you are inclined to share and see this before we head out, Ill be happy to post the after action report when we get back! 😄👍

    Re: Monterey Bay Surf Perch.

    outstanding!! buddy came up from SoCal. we fished a couple of days straight. the tides were not perfect in sonoma. high tide was after dark..so we started each day at 3pm and just went for it. baby swells. friend brought ultralight trout gear and he did well. fish were biting 15 feet out from our feet. i did "okay" i got a big bite from some mystery fish that took a lot of line when i set the hook. he tossed the hook despite my best efforts. it was a very good time.. i have yet to find a day of bites at every cast. granted i think i am now on trip #12 of my new found hobby of surf perch chasing. i got a lot of use out of my brand new 6 week old 2018 fishing license. :D happy new year buds.
