I have been fishing the jetties and beeches for as long as I can remember. Shiner perch, surf perch, rock perch, black sea bass, kelp greenling, greenling, lingcod, cabezon, salmon, herring, anchovies, pile perch and who knows how many other species. I know of at least 25 people personally who fish for all of these species. Yet I have never seen an article covering anything on them. There is no source here for where to catch any of these fish. No tactics for early Ling, no bait articles, artificial lures that work are the secrets of those who have fished forever. NOTHING! Sure there are charter boats for those who don't know how to fish but the jetty fishing, dock fishing and numerous species that can be caught in the surf are so under covered and even more under rated. Surf fishing for perch and catching 5-10 pound Black sea bass. How and when to catch these fish is a trade secret. Can you catch fish on the outgoing tide or just the incoming. Is a large tide change better than a small one? Again, NOTHING!
Why is this? I can not understand why such a diverse and rebust fishing option have had no coverage at all. I realize that we don't have the sea trout, Reds and other speices that oyu have on the East Coast but come on. Species wise there is just as many and I will be most of them are easier to catch; If you know how.
