Hi everyone. I am new here and have been reading lots of great stuff about surf fishing in CA but I am up in Oregon and wondered what the deal is up here? I am mostly interested in perch but am not picky. Any fishing is fun fishing. I have read a lot about light tackle fishing but does anyone know if that works well in OR? Some of the stuff I read says use a 12ft pole, 20lb line, and 3-5 oz weight with a crappie style rig using bait on it. Other things say a 6' 6"ish trout pole with 6lb line and a carolina rigged artificial bait. What it the best way to go? Also I will be fishing near a jetty that extends out about 100 ft. (South jetty of Nehalem bay if you know the area.) Would this effect the outfit I should be using? Are there better place to fish close to this area? Thanks for all the help. I hope you people can save me money by helping me buy the correct kind of setup.
