Mussels are proving to be the way to go. Got this little surf perch this morning. Waves were pounding the shore with 5-8 foot faces. Just happened to let my slider sit in the near-shore trough for a little longer than normal. A wave slammed down and my rod tip kept bouncing. I felt a small tug, but as you can see by the size of the fish, I really didn’t think there was anything there. Low an below, a palm-size surf perch on the hook. Solid hook placement in the upper corner of the jaw. Sometimes I definitely would rather be lucky than good.
