    Were you driving a white Blazer with a big ass BD sticker in the rear window?
    I saw one pulling into the AM/PM in Dana Point about noon. Had some rods in it,

    From all the reports I read from SD to SB, the surf fishing as been great. Especially on bigger perch moving in.

    Hopefully your area will pick up.

    I figured it was the water temp ...... Sucs I usually will catch stingrays, shovel nose , bat rays and leopard shark every cast out there so I was surprised .... I have been catching a lot of perch and rock fish I think they are they look like a calico bass but shorter body and huge mouth kinda give a good fight .... Anyway thanks for the replys

    Shark populations are down in the surf in socal, because they breed in summer in shallow water. You'll have better luck around rivermouths and inlets now if targeting sharks.

    Cold water is a Moot issue regarding our inshore marine fish, with a few exceptions being Spotties, which STILL feed heavily throughout winter. 90% of the year that water is pretty damn cold in the deeper portions. Sure it feels warm in the shallows, but if you wade deeper, you'll feel it. Unless there is a cold upwelling, its only a few degrees cooler than in summer. (again dont count the shallows.)
