I signed up for the derby.  Do you supply bait?  What else do I need?  Dominick

you'll have to get your own bait.

you'll need waders and a life jacket for starters, a good steelhead spinner and a reel with braid, a sand spike, surf leaders and 6 to 8 ounce pyramid sinkers.  eddie likes blood worms the best, but you will have to go south to coyote bait and tackle to get them.  soft shell sand crabs, ghost shrimp, pile worms, even artificials like berkley gulp might work.  alternatively, you can curly tail grubs on a carolina rig and constantly "cast and retrieve," but that's alot of work.

i just got mine at the local fisherman's warehouse.  not sure of the brand. they're at the cayucos house, so they don't get much use.

Not many places to find a pair that fit. That's why I don't have a set.

Waders aren't a must.
I've gone out there with rubber boots.
I don't get in the surf at Francis.
I wear wader pants and wading boots in case the occasional large wave comes a ways up the beach. I've only gotten water up to my ankles, maybe calves.

I wear LL Bean waders trout fishing and they are great..... They sell several models with varying prices...

LL Bean is running a 25% off sale right now!

Neoprene stocking foot waders are warm and comfortable if you can find a good boot to go with them.

Big Tim!

Please send the “Golden Carp” award to me and I will present it to Dominick!

His “smaller than what would qualify as BAIT” perch qualifies in my minds eye!

Your thoughts?

Ben,

Are you going to post a full fishing report?

Post by: Alans Buddy on March 25, 2019, 04:47:16 AM
Hello Bryan,

I don't have all the details to post a full report.
The big fish was 1.6 lbs, about 13 inches.

It was a perfect day to be on the beach. T shirt weather and sunshine all day. I got skunked but the rest made up for it.

Yep the weather was perfect.  Mike brought some cured meats which he generously gave out.  I will post some pictures when I set it up and serve.  Dominick

AMAZING cured meats!
Should open a shop Mike.
Thanks for your generosity!

Thanks but to many regulations prevent someone from making money. I keep it low key and that's the way I like it. That's why food is so expensive. They over tax over regulate everything in California.

Thanks again for the meats Mike! I had some of the liguica last night and it was FANTASTIC! I might have to hide the rest from everyone else in the house....

On to the fishing...Kinda a tough day, really. On Saturday, the swell was darn near perfect, at 4'-6' every 11 seconds. Sunday, however, was a different story. Overnight, it jacked up to 8'-10' every 12 seconds. The beach itself was very nicely carved up, with lots of holes and rips that looked extremely fishy to me. There was a new one about every 200-300 yards. It was low tide when we started, which let us get a real good idea of where the holes were. There were sand crab beds at the mouth of pretty much every rip that I saw. Good signs!  As the tide came in, people started getting a few bites and landing a few fish. I got mine just after the tide started changing. By and large, though, it didn't seem like much was happening. I walked the beach to about a half mile north and saw or heard of 3-4 fish being caught(including the derby winner!) I worked back down the beach almost a mile past where everyone was at for another 2 fish. Nothing huge, but definitely keepers. I ended up with 4 caught, 1 released.

Francis beach in HMB is a VERY fishy-looking beach. I think that the sudden change in the swell made it more difficult to fish and maybe put them off the bite a bit. But if you are in the area and are looking to do some beach fishing, I highly recommend it!

The derby itself was a blast! Very friendly people putting it on and participating. Working my way up and down the beach, I talked to almost every person that I passed! For those of you that don't do much beach fishing, that's pretty uncommon unless you fish there or know the people you see. Great time and I can't wait to do it again!

Mike
