I was wondering how to spot fishing holes in the surf how do you know its there ?????????
Where there is a lot of surf and suds it's shallow. Where there are no or fewer surf and suds it's deeper-that's the spot you want to try. Sometimes the "spots" will be small like the size of a car or may be large and deep with a good, unbroken color. Shallow sand makes the waves break whereas adjacent holes allow the waves to pass over without breaking until they find a shallow spot-sometimes right at the shoreline. You'll figure it out.

Sorry, I will begin by replying to your title line. You can spot fishing hoes because they have the nicest gear!
As far as your real question, look for these kinds of things (in addition to the excellent suggestions above):
-waves that look like they're about to break but then flatten out or get mushy. Indicates the water gets deeper toward shore there. Or whitewater that abates as it moves toward shore.
-rip currents. may be associated with the above or not. generally have dirtier water, often ending in a larger plume just outside the waves. waves may be slow to break across a rip because of the deeper channel or may appear to form and break quickly due to the outrushing current against the waves. sometimes there is a lot of loose kelp in rips.
-sand crab beds. they don't necessarily indicate holes, but if the beds are isolated, there may be fish feeding just in those areas.
Move around a lot until you get bit. Sometimes the holes are not obvious and you can't see them but when you catch a fish, you're probably there. Also, try fishing a period from low tide to high--sometimes easier to see the "structure" at low tide then you can work it as the tide fills in.
Labor Day, Hoes all over the surf. All you need is alot of beer and a radio and your all set.
A good way to find some surf hoes is to look for what the 2 gentlemen above said. Wave breaks will tell you were spots are deepest, fish will stack in those places especially the flat kind.

Great advice and explanations.
I feel like Ive learned more in this post then all the research Ive ever done on the subject...
I wish people got straight to the point like this in the other articles!
When i go looking for hoes near the beach, I always look for breaking waves and use a lure called Greenbacks. Make sure you get and use the flashy sparkly ones they work the best, lures the hoes in at any hole near the beach
If you wanna find hoes on the beach just go to the shoreline flip out you dick and hold up $50.
This might help. The website is everything and anything you need about surf fishing. Check the rest of it out.
Yes, thanks for posting this Ben. SC is my site and has been around now since 2005 and has become a huge surf fishing site dedicated to educating people on fishing the surf in Southern California.
If you register, when asked "We like to fish the ____?" Just type in surf. The site grew so quickly we got attacked by porn bots. Question cleared up the problem.
And no, not spam. Jason and Ali of BD are good friends of mine and the BD is the only site I link with.
You have a great site J, keep up the good work.
