Sharking the OC has been pretty damn good this year. Here TerraFirmaTackle shows off some monster Sevengills he pulled off the beach recently. In years past, it was tough to find or hear of many sharks in the OC, but the guys have been putting it together and figuring out where they’ve been hiding! Congrats […]
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 […]

Fishing San Diego Bay or Mission Bay from shore can be very productive with a little bit of know-how and a healthy amount of perseverance. When it comes to fishing spots, Google Earth is your best friend. You can fish anywhere you want unless there are No Fishing signs posted. In general, fish relate to […]
Many of these terms are used in our Forum board as well as the articles. This is to aid anglers on common words thrown around the SoCal fishing community.

Well, the grunion run is about to begin and that means the coast is about to get inundated with a lot of bait and the game fish that follow them. This ranges from sharks and rays to bass and butts. One of the most sought after game during this time is the Shortfin Corvina (Cynoscion […]
Lobster Hoop Nets Now, you NEVER know what might show up in your hoop net while lobster fishing. It could be Seven-gill sharks, Bat Rays or just an array of weird crabs. This sucker was a purse crab I hooped up and actually didn’t fall through the netting. They are like big golf balls and […]

Soupfin Shark from the surf – That’s what member Rasta happened to capture last night! It was a good evening tide and everything looked good for a big evening of shark fishing! It wasn’t as wide open as we hoped, but after Rasta farmed his first Soupfin, he redeemed himself with a nice and fat […]
With the Saturday Night Bat Fight X, looming… a few guys were hitting the sand for some Sevengill sharks. I know of 4 caught in San Diego that day, but Ron fishing up in Ventura County has just been crushing it in 2017! Here he shows off another double of Sevengill Sharks that he wrangled […]
Ben is one of a growing number of species fishermen. He travels the world in search of species and this lends to fish for everything big and small. Please follow the link to Ben’s most recent trip to Acapulco where he added well over a dozen new species to his ever growing list!
Well if the Bat Rays aren’t biting, then find something that is! The last few days I’ve been hunting the bay and getting my share of Spotted Bay Bass. There are few better ways to spend a day off than hunting the shoreline with your trusty bass gear and a pocket full of plastic swim baits.
LA Bats. Well it’s about time! After all of the bat rays in SoCal went MIA for the last few months, Verne finally found one. It may not be much of a specimen, but with the Saturday Night Bat Fight around the corner, it’s a step in the right direction. Be sure to follow the […]
The Sevengill Surf Sharks are returning! Well, at least a few guys started plucking them out of the surf last night. A big series of storms is about to hit Southern California which is bringing big and turbulent surf. This will mess up the beaches once again, so a few guys got out last night […]
Ventura Sevengill Sharking Well sometimes it isn’t about the freshest bait out there as Chad could attest to when he caught this nice Sevengill off the beach with “a big chunk of mac jerky” from a liquor store bait freezer. You never know what they will be hitting, but one thing is for certain… You […]
