Long Beach Surf Perch?
« on: December 08, 2023, 09:36:59 AM »
For you folks that successfully fish Long Beach for surf perch, is there certain tides you prefer? looking to try it out for the first time. Generally I like a super low tide at another beach I fish, but Ive seen other beaches behaving differrently.

Ive done really well driving the beach at low tide and making notes of structure that will be flooded on the incoming and high tides.
I try to fish 1.5 hours before high, through the slack.
Have done very well with that method.

Same. Never even tried to fish low tide though  :dunno:

I'm certainly no expert, but the structure syoungs is talking about does not need to be anything crazy. Small depressions, rocky bottom, etc.

What others have said, slack tide with a low surf. The best water seems to be the days your literally standing in about a foot of water consistently with not much wave/tide fluctuation.

Clam necks or camo colored Gulp sand worms  :tup:

Never had much luck at Long Beach. Done well further north up the Washington coast though.

As mentioned 1.5 hour prior to low tide.  I look for points that stick out towards the ocean at low tide.  Typically cast behind the first set of waves.  I like using the triangle hollow in the middle weights with the anchor points on them or flat circular puck like weights.  I will run a piece of clam neck on one hook and a gulp sand dab worm on another or go scrape the muscle rocks for worms.  Bait up with what they are hitting best.  We do good one them and typically fish more down towards Ocean Park or Oysterville.

I like to fish the slack tide, and try to keep my line three rollers off the break.

After filling my razor clam limit, I grab the pole and fish on outgoing tide, through low tide.  Long beach is a bit more challenging because the gentle grade of the beach.  Steep sloped beaches are much better for surf perch.  I always manage to catch a few though at long beach.  a piece of Clam neck works great for bait.
