For FishingMagician.com, I'm Eric Granstrom. The learning curve continues for me when it comes to surf fishing. Last week while on vacation on the Oregon and Washington coasts, I spent considerable time trying to catch some sea perch. Three years ago, I blindly waded into the waters off Grayland, Washington and caught six. Marion and I enjoyed a bountiful dinner of the delicious finned critters. So last year, I armed myself with more knowledge, bait, gear, and some dry waders. I was shut out. So, prior to this year's trip, I went to YouTube and watched videos from various experts on catching surf perch off the western coast of the United States. The one thing no one went into, however, was what to look for in the waves. I tried beach after beach, wave after wave, trying to get a perch to bite. I caught bucket loads of sculpin. I caught a few races and even a couple flounders. But through five days and six beaches, I caught a total of three sea perch, all of which too small to keep. Seems I need to do more research before my next vacation on the beach. Until next time, Good Fishing!
