    Had a few goals this week: Catch some fish on a stretch of beach I hadn't fished yet, which is now a short walk from my pad, and to cross a few species off that I haven't caught yet (bsp and corbina). While those 2 fish are many peoples bread and butter surf fish, I have done almost all of my surf fishing on rocky beaches in the sunset cliffs area, never spent much time on sandy beaches.
    Fished this morning for a few hours, got started at sunrise, high tide near 6 feet was at 7:40ish. Started with a c-rig, 1/2 oz sinker, 30# braid mainline and 8# mono leader, size 6 hooks using gulp worms. Found a decent hole and caught 4 barred surf perch, had a few other bites that didn't get hooked. Kept a gut hooked bsp. After the perch stopped biting I tied on a 15# mono leader and a LC 110. Threw that for awhile with no takers. Salad was pretty minimal, except for a thick pocket in a rip. Happy to have caught some fish at a new area to me, and to cross the bsp off the list. Probably try again tomorrow or maybe sunset tonight. Tight lines

    It holds up to “sashimi grade” even after being frozen? I don’t know if I made this up or someone told me but I thought after being frozen a while it’s best to cook it

    All sushi grade fish, with a couple of exceptions, is frozen for a minimum of 72 hours if it is to be prepared uncooked...

    I took the time to make a late night and vacuum seal all my tuna the same day it's caught (and all my fish really). Vacuum sealed frozen is supposed to stay fresh for a very long time.

    kciuchta I'm down man. I know a good rocky beach in the area to get down at too for big bass and croakers

    We should link up next summer. My newest favorite corbina spot is next to you. This August was ridiculous a couple of times.


    vacuum seal it and you’re good. Parasites are real, and though maybe rare but can last forever. After learning about them I only cook through or freeze for 24 hours minimum.

    Do you like putting fish sticks in your mouth?

    Live bait size 6 haven't used size 8 yet, but I have them if I'm getting tagged and nothing is committing. The barbs on the live bait hooks help keep the worms on the hooks a little better.

    Thanks for the replies on hooks guys. Today I used the same size 6 circle hooks I use for general bait fishing. I felt like the hook sized up well with the worm, but as is symptomatic of all gulp baits, the bait doesn't like to stay put for long and starts ripping up eventually. I had thought maybe a bait holder hook or something might be better. Also I need to try out the "perch crack" worms I got from sdedtune last year. I forgot i had them until searching my tackle boxes while re-loading my bag for tomorrow.
