    Hi folks,
    I’m taking the kids grunion hunting Friday night. I’ve read that the second hour in the 2 hour period is better and that the 2nd and 3rd nights in the 4 day series is best.
    Does anyone have any recommendations on which beach we’ll have better luck?
    Thanks all in advance.

    As near as I have heard, no one beach has really been on the leading edge.. mb, coronado, even OB has had a few.. good luck to you and the kids, let us know how it went

    No show at mission. Lots of people and lots of flashlights. I'll give it another shot on Saturday.

    I saw someone post that Long Beach county has been pulling them out like crazy. Like the whole beach has them, but not sure about this week. Usually the second and third night are great!

    The best beach for me is Malibu just north of the pier in the last 30 mins. I went several times last year and had bucket loads of grunion.

    Malibu is just a bit to far from me. Hoping tonight at Newport brings schools of them to shore.
