Portuguese Beach report


Active Member
Fished Portuguese Beach (Sonoma Coast State Park North of Bodega Bay) today on the outgoing tide. If the surf is big, this place is unfishable. But today the surf was perfect. Big enough to churn up food for the perch but small enough to work your set up into the spots you are targeting.
Caught ten perch ( 7 red tails, 3 wall eyes) to 11". Boy, when you hook up with a keeper-sized red tail (10.5") you have a real fight on your hands!
Used an 8' 6" Ugly Stick E-Lite salmon rod with a modified Hi/Lo leader, N0.2 baitholder hooks, Gulp Sand worms (Blood and Camo) and a 2 oz. pyramid weight on the end. Fun, fun, fun.
