The Carolina-rigged GULP sandworm is an awesome set-up for light tackle surf perch fishing on the beaches from Baja to BC!
Fish it on light gear and slowly retrieve the rig along the bottom on steeply sloped sandy beaches for some serious fun.
Surf perch attack quickly and the typical bite is a rapid-fire shot of sharp taps. Think or hesitate before you set the book and it will be too late.
To learn all about how to identify the choice spots for perch fishing, along with other rigs and tips, check out my eBook: Light Tackle Surf Perch It is routinely in Amazon best seller’s list and reviewers have given it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
Being an avid surf angler, I’m always checking out Surf Casters Journal where I found this pic. Check ’em out…lots of cool stuff there.
What about rock-hopping your favorite trout creek?
Or chasing big game off Baja?
Maybe your thing is stripping a streamer for jumbo trout…
Or would you rather be hiking the Alaskan backcountry along a river jammed with chrome?
Of course, it wouldn’t suck to be dropping the drifter in at sunrise on some favorite river, either…
Which one would you pick? Or give us one not on the list… Where would you be fishing this morning if you could?
So people often ask me where to go fishing in Alaska and I often point them to Kodiak Island. The place is beautiful and you can have an amazing do-it-yourself adventure at a reasonable price by just renting a car, staying at a B&B (The absolute best: A Smiling Bear) and eating on the cheap (there’s Taco Bell, Safeway, etc).
The Kodiak road system takes you to some pretty epic fishing…fresh and surf…and through some awesome countryside. I’ve made a couple trips up there over the past few seasons and this is one from 2011 that I finally got to putting to video.
