    It's slow

    Fishing has been slow here so stay home. We don't need more kooks on the beach

    Your welcome in my neighbor hood any time!! Lots of decent size perch to be had.
    Still waiting for a hali from the surf though. (got three last year!!)
    I use gulp. I have a sand flea trap but I never lug it around, I prefer to be VERY mobile.

    Hey Kim, wrong attitude :moon: You'll find peers who share your non-fishing feelings on an MPA site I'm sure.;)

    Josh :
    When the water warms up a bit and the Halibut come in closer Crocodiles work well. Plenty of shore anglers on this site to hook up with. Good luck and make sure to take pics.

    Really? Do you really want this as your first post? You just might want to take your selfish attitude somewhere else. This guy is just politely asking for fishing buddies and a little help.

    Camo sand worms are good too. Try the sand crabs if you see them under your feet. We also use big hammers swim baits mostly in 3" on 3/8 lead heads and Lucky Craft hard baits with 110's the most popular. Good Luck and post up.

    I like using the 3" motoroil green red flake grub worm on a carolina rig, also orange with black flake....great for barred surf perch, I've fished the Ventura Harbor in channel on high tide with blue and chrome crocodiles with success catching Halibut. Good Luck take pixs and let us know how ya did, don't mind those stupid remarks from 805Hooligan, hes not a regular on our site he's a wanna be.

    Being my first post and all. I wanted to know if anyone has caught any perch around VC. I've been out on the surf for 2 1/2 months every day to every other day and nothing. I've thrown LC, Krock, Grubs, Crack and sand crabs nothing. I think it's fished out or something

    First how are you holding your mouth? Theres tons of barred surf Perch around VC, SB, areas......tides are a main thing for increased bites incoming and outgoing....grubs in the motoroil green w/red flake have produced more for me on a Carolina Rig.....Silverstrand Bch, Emma Wood Bch, Mugu Rock, Santa Claus Lane, beach in front of Neptunes net is good stay away from the surfers, any stretch of beach between Mugu Rock and Malibu has produced well....if heading Santa Barbara ways Ledbedder Bch, Gaviota and Goleta Bch, Jalama Bch, Guadalupe area is REALLY productive.....my family fishes that area hard with large surf perch....anyways good luck and post pictures!

    Incoming high tide yesterday evening, medium salad, mainly big pieces, easy to avoid,
    light wind.
    Threw carolina rigged MORF, 500 casts, maybe a couple nibbles, not one fish
    Probably gonna be windy this weekend,
    good luck

    I'm not sure what you mean by "holding your mouth" means. But I'm not a greenhorn by any means. I've been surf fish for a while now (2yrs) in VC like every day to every other day. You can say I'm a regular at it. But this year seems way too odd to be like this. I mean I'm not getting a single nibble for MONTHS. I think the dredging isn't helping also. All I wanted to know was if there was someone that can explain this surf fish season. Thanks

    It's mid march 2018 and I've been going after leopard sharks for the past 3 or 4 months. I've tried fishing all around mugu area, oxnard, and carpinteria. I haven't got anything yet. I use a 12 foot pole with a 2 to 3 foot 65lb mono leader and 50lb braided line. I use squid and have had a couple of bits but not much. Am I doing anything wrong, is it the wrong time of year, am I fishing the wrong spots? If you have any advice please reply. Thanks
