|I read some of the past posts in this thread.
It was nice to see the Dompfapops’s post. He has the subject covered pretty well and expertly of course.
My input would be as follows;
A) Opaleye likes rocky area.
B) Chumming frozen peas is essential
C) Moss is great bait, yet it is not easy to keep it on the hook.
D) I have caught them with mussels, ghost shrimp and peas. Not with moss yet, but I have seen it done by others.
E) The “open mussels” rig works, it’s just I have not used it since when I was fishing at the Santa Monica pier in 1970-71.
F) The bobber rig is best—that is what I use most, but I have caught them with high-low, when I was fishing for sheephead.
G) Their mouth is small, but it is very tough. I have broken a hook in one.
H) Go with small hook as recommended.
I hope the above helps.
yes big help, thanks
I think will try the open mussels if I don't get anything form the frozen green peas.
