    As far as it goes for halibut from the surf there are lots of great things to use. My personal favorites are the 4in' big hammer swimbaits, lucky craft 110 flash minnow and for bait fishing i like anchovies, move your rod every 20-30min. though. I recently saw a guy catch a 26 in. halibut near seal beach on and anchovie head, circle hooks were the key. hope this helps.

    Fish bigger baits like swimbaits, crankbaits, krocs, etc.

    Keep walking and casting. If you are fishing a straight sandy beach, look for holes, sand bars, trenches etc to increase you chances of finding them. Can be tough though at times because you need a lot of things to line up ie. in general small surf, bait in the surf, fish to have found the bait, clean water etc.

    Best chances are near hard structure that is in the surf zone. Jetty's, boiler rocks, reefs, piers etc. These areas attract bait more consistently since they do not move like sand structure does.

    Good luck and be patient.
