Looking from Huntington Beach towards Palos Verdes
This morning was cold with a welcome offshore breeze. As the tide improves over the next couple of days, and as the wind dies down, fishing should get much better. Because the fish haven't had a chance to eat much over the last few days, they should be ready to explode once the conditions are right.
Now is a great time to get you equipment cleaned up and ready. Tie a few leaders and go through your beach tackle and be ready for the next bite. This time of year the perch are incredibly hungry and 1 & 1/2 inch grubs in curly or stump tail work great. I love to cover them in Taco Bell/Del Taco hot sauce and fan cast from the beach.
Because the perch are so deprived of food this time of year they hammer these grubs in hopes of finally finding a decent meal. Look for the big fish to start showing up as soon as TODAY!
Last week I asked the great surfer, Corky Carroll, if I could reprint his informative article on staph infections caused by local ocean water and he replied back to me just like I had inside position on a gnarley set: "Go for it dude!"
Everybody, including your kids or friends who come in contact with the ocean should read this: http://fishthesurf.homestead.com/FTSstaphinfection.html
See you at the beach (but not in the water!) Bill
