I did pretty darn well on them Saturday.  Fished about an hour.  Can't wait to dig clams next weekend!

Sled, could we meet up sometime on the beach?  I own a home in Grayland, and use to fish commercially and deckhanded on charters for a living, and in my off time, I never picked up surf perch fishing.  I'd love to get it down.  how often are you down there?

thanks!

I do real well down off the Warrenton Cannery road and go to the left just a little bit. Looking forward to giving it a try with the clams this weekend. :tup:

I have the Surf Perch bug so bad that I'm not thinking about ducks. The drive from smellvue is to the coast is rough but worth it.

I love perch, they are some seriously good fish!
