Sound like Kovach..90% of the fisherman catch 10% of the fish. Put in time and befriend and support your local tackle dealer. You are on your way Danielson!Lots of youtube videos on how to find the wheres ( reading a beach ) as well as the whens. 90% of the fish will always be found in 10% of the water. Doesn't mater if it's off shore or the surf. Invest in a pair of waders and a few Lucky Craft lures 110 size with some blue in them and go for it.
Aaahahaha.. I'm smoked out man.. When you first posted this I checked it out but I went to "prehistoric.com" .. I was like what kinda bs dinosaur crap is this guy trying to sell.. But now that I went to "prehistoricsoul" it all makes sense and is probably one of the best leads so far..Try prehistoricsoul.com
Their facebook page is also good. You can ask questions of a lot of the guys and most will answer. Some might even invite you along to show you where and how they are doing it.Aaahahaha..

soupfin?If by toothy you mean sharks, it can be done, most of the will be leopards and won’t need wire, just a good hook and some 100lb mono leaders. Use A slab of mackerel or a squid and cast out just beyOnd the waves. Find a sandy beach near some rocks\kelp. Also may get a rarer soup fin this way as well. When I was much younger we would use our jig sticks for this with #40 mainline.
knows his shit. Great advice.I have routinely caught many sharks surf fishing bolsa chica / Huntington Beach. Lots of 4-5 foot leopards and lots of big bat rays. Even some mystery fish that have dumped 400 yards of line off my reel
My go to rig is 9 foot jig stick. Diawa sealine 50 with 50-60 power pro. 4-5 foot leader of 40lb mono. Spider hitch the mono. 5/0 octopus owner hook. 5 or 6 oz pyramid weight.
Bait is where it’s at.........try and make surf perch or any other fresh fish you can catch in the surf. Like they always say. MATCH THE HATCH
I use About 7 foot PVC pipe for a rod holder. Dig down and bury the PVC about 2 feet in the sand to make sure your rod is secure. Lost a nice setup a few years back watching my rod get launched in the air when a big boy took my bait and ultimately my whole set up
Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK
Ya... But I don't want to eat them.. I just wanna pet there belly (maybe give them a kiss on the cheek) and let'em go.. I mostly stick to catch and release..Have personally seen several thresher sharks being caught off of the Huntington Beach pier. Bring a pier gaff with strong rope if you do, as it's the only way to get them up. If successful you'll be rewarded with some amazing eats.
