Fishing The Ocean From Shore - Rock Fishing Fro...

Mar 29 2012 05:41 PM | Capt. Garry in Ocean Fishing From Shore, Great Shore fishing tips

Fishing for rock fish from shore is a great way to enjoy a day of fishing at the ocean with very little expense or hassle. Rock fishing from shore usually will yield you a good meal or two of fine tasting fresh fish and some days your shore fishing efforts will amaze you! I have gone fishing for rock fish from the shore one day and caught my limit and gone the next day and caught four. But, seldom has there been a day when my shorefishing efforts didn’t pay off enough for at least dinner.  You can try fishing from beaches, but don’t expect much. Rockfishing is where most of the fish are caught except for perch most of the time.  The best bait for catching rock fish is also the free kind. We will discuss what kind of bait to use for fishing from the shore of the ocean for rock fish a little later along with where to fish for rock fish from the shore.  Also, make sure you read this killer article on catching rock fish and eels with a "poke pole"!

The ling cod, Cabazon, and other bottom fish like to hang out in the rocky areas and there is a great article on shorefishing for those here. Catching crab on the beaches is a common occurrence as well.
