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 […]
Lingcod — a member of the greenling family — isn’t the only West Coast species to turn up with blue-green meat. Its cousins, the rock greenling and the kelp greenling, are sometimes tinted turquoise, as is an unrelated sculpin called the cabezon, which shares the same habitat.

Sevengill’s of Summer… at least the start of the Summertime surf fishing contest! The wind, weeds and weather are playing a major factor on fishing conditions as well as the crazy high tides but it looks like we have a break coming up which should allow for some more summer time shark fishing! Here, Member […]
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 […]
