Thanks to everyone who came to last weekend’s surf fishing seminar in Carlsbad. We all had a great time during the two day clinic and caught some nice fish. Our best catches came on three baits: ghost shrimp, sand crabs and lug worms. I pre-fished on Thursday and had a nice bite on perch, yellowfin and one nice corbina.

The seminars followed with some nice fish including perch, corbina, croaker and a few sharks.

This week I had the chance to get down to catch some bait and do a bit of fishing. In the evening I caught fish and bait.

The next morning it was down to Bolsa Chica State Beach to catch a few more.

Over the next few days we do have some relatively slack tides but it looks like fishing will still be good. As we move in to next week, the tides build to provide some great shots at fish over the weekend and remain good all the way through the end of the month.

San Diego has been kicking out big numbers of corbina and spotfin croaker. Orange Co. has provided a steady pick on corbina, perch and croaker and LA Co. has produced some huge perch. All in all, a very good surf fishing summer so far….

Bless all soldiers who keep us free and safe!!

It's been a busy July with several seminars, vacations and surf fishing road trips. It was nice to be home for a few days and relax--but that didn't last for long--I had to get back down to the beach.

There is still space in our Carlsbad Seminar on Friday and/or Saturday August 12, 13. Send us an email to reserve your spot: Also, go to our seminar page for more info...

Made bait in the harbor and hit the sand. Had a good bite on a few midsized perch and a couple of croaker.

Although I've been seeing a few corbina in the surf they seem to have been prefering someone else's bait. Still good reports of big spotfin and corbina being caught. Some at Huntington and many in San Diego near T Pines and Carlsbad.

Woke up Friday and made my way back down to the beach with the best bait ever in hopes of catching the big one. But the waves were up and the current swirled with the power of a freight train so I made my way back inside the bay.

Inside the bay, I found a couple yellowfin croaker, one small halibut and a few turbo. Nothing for the record books this week but still some darn good fishing.

Next week looks to offer some good tides both in the morning and evening for fishing and catching bait. The south swell created by the hurricane off Cabo should be behind us and allow the current and waves to calm. Remember, the beach should have some new and interesting changes next week so take time at low tide to check out your favorite beach, find the new holes and troughs, then go back at high tide and fish them.
