Shot down to the beach late Friday to catch some bait. The sand had been moved and reshaped by the recent storm and I wasn’t sure what I would find. Looks like everything is still in great shape…

Reached the sand well before sunlight and decided to cover as much of Huntington Beach as possible. Layers of clothes in the morning gave way to stripping down as the sun belted the beach. Wow, it’s warm for December…

My buddy Ken and I took our first shot at fish off the rocks. Tides seemed perfect for this spot but bites were slow with only a few walleye to show for it.

We decided to move up the beach to an open area that always holds fish in the summer. Who knows, maybe we’ll have some luck today. First few casts some nice yellowfin and small perch jump on the hook.

The bite seemed to slow as the high tide approached so it was off to our last spot. When we got there things looked good. There were perch, yellowfin and a nice spotfin couldn’t resist our baits. I’m coming back here soon…

Finally we ran low on bait and it was time to head home and work on our holiday chores. Who knows what the weather and surf have in store for us over the next few days—but one thing’s for sure--fish are spread out and ready to bite!!!

This upcoming week may present some challanges if the surf comes up as expected. Otherwise, with just small changes in the weather we should see some nice tides lead to some even better fishing. I hope everyone has a great holiday with time to enjoy your family and do some much needed surf fishing!!!
