    I just picked up a pack of Berkeley mice tails. Has anybody ever use them in the surf? I got this really nice Sargo last Friday on gulp sandworm 20190719_070458.jpg and I would like to get MORE! Any suggestions on rigs or bait?

    Works for the perch up north. I don't see why it wouldn't work here.

    Ghost shrimp, market shrimp, mussel or clam on a number 4 or smaller hook... They don't exactly have big mouths.. expect lots of bycatch

    Sargo are hard to target in that there just aren't that many of them or places to specifically find them. A whole lot of luck involved for sargo imho

    My buddy had the record for Sargo for a bit, yours appears to waste his by a couple inches maybe. Nice one!

    I’ve used atomic tubes and gulp earthworms with a degree of success on YFCs

    I’m sure perch would be all over them as well, out of curiosity...

    I’ve tried them but with no luck. Didn’t give too much of an effort. Used orange with white
