Oregon Surf Fishing

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.

For the most part, Oregon beaches have pretty high waves and there are very few days when you can get away with a light rig.
I haven't fished in the Nehalem bay but if you drive south on 101 for about 20 minutes, you'll get to Tillamook bay where the jetty extends out longer. There are lots of kelp greenling off that jetty.
I'm sure you can nail them at the Nehalem jetty as well.
I usually focus on the northern beaches in the Seaside area.

Thanks for confirming my thoughts. If you don't mind, where do you usually have success up north at? General location is fine, I don't want to steal your secret spot, just looking for a good location to start.
