Earlier this week the waves were tame and the seas flat--but everything is subject to change without notice!
Tons of small perch like this mean the big ones are coming!
This week we concentrated on live baits using lug worms, mussel and sidewinder crabs to catch fish. In all, the bite was very slow because of the large surf and surge--but as the surf calms down the bite will improve.
Watch the tides this week and try to fish the high and low tides swings. Make sure your in areas where the water is moving, especially those adjacent to areas of no water movement. As with last week don't be surprised if you catch perch, spotfin and yellowfin croaker or a corbina--that's just how good it's been.This is one of the biggest Walleye Perch I've ever seen.

In the meantime have a great and safe New Year, buy that new license, and get on down to the beach for some great local surf fishing!
