Soupfin sharks generally show up in April on the beaches and usually hang around all summer before moving back from which they came. Only a couple of Soupfin have been caught early […]
Surf fishing in Southern California for many anglers down here usually involve small bass rods and light line. There are a few who target something a little bigger and badder that swim our surf and can test your tackle as well as your back. For years my friend Don up in LA would try to […]

The current has been ripping and the winds have been howling. This week is giving way to high surf conditions which will probably keep many surf shark guys off the beach until the sea conditions get better. In the meantime, the Bat Rays have been snapping up in SoCal which has made for the only […]
It was bound to happen sooner than later, but one of the guys just landed a Great White Shark from the beach. It was only a juvenile, but even cooler to see it so compact and yet still fierce and mean looking. Here is the short version… Matt has been looking for a big Sevengill lately […]

The Grinner Gathering ended up living up to it’s name after most had packed it in. It was a really fun time getting to meet and fish with all the familiar names on the website from over the years. Many of us met up at the Tidewater Tavern prior to the event to get […]
It’s finally happening… The Sevengill sharks are starting to make their appearance off the local SoCal beaches. There has been a steady trickle of surf sharks the past month, but this seems to be getting more frequent over the past few weeks with more that even found a way to escape the hook after taking […]
It’s been a few months of rigorous use, but I am ready to write my review of the Coastline SurfSystem fishing “Back Pack” (I leave that in quotes as it is not truly a typical back pack). I received this fishing back pack from Ted Blake who designed this system initially to work the beaches […]
