I hear the perch action is starting up,so i grabbed my 7' spinning rod and headed to Marina beach.
I read up .... 10lb test, red bead w/ sliding sinker above,about 2' leader with 1 1/2 moter oil grub. Cast beyond the breakers and reel in slow.
I walked up and down the surf ( it was kind of rough) casting, but not a single bite. Is there a trick to catching surf perch?
Appreciate if anyone can help me. Thanks
That's 100% how I do it. Keep at it, as that's a good rig... once you find the perch you should do well. I like Pajaro Dunes down by the river mouth.

Thats the way to fish. Try some Berkley gulp it works great.
Either the small curltail grubs or the sandworms cut in half. The motor oil or camo color works good.
They also make a small sandworm called the neireis ( sp ? ) or something like that works great.
Keep trying different spots.
