Default Santa Monica (chevron) - Venice Beach


Santa Monica (Chevron)

Fished the Chevron area of SM about 6:30ish am. The salad bar was open and in full force. There was a long line of loose kelp and debris up and down the beach. Cast too far and you pull right through all the junk. Every cast was salad. I worked my way to the rocks and found no salad and no bites. I was ready to pack it in when I saw 2 beans raiding a crab bed. I cast my MORF grub well behind them and “BAM”, I'm on. An 18 incher. I see another pair, cast, “BAM”, on again. A 16 incher. I picked up a 10 inch BSP as well. Kept a bean for the fryer and I was done by 8am.

Venice Beach

Got on the sand by 6:15am. No salad over here. Crab beds everywhere. You find the right crab/clam bed and you will find the fish. I fished about 50 feet of beach, never had to move. The croakers were plentiful. All 10 to 12 inchers. I stop counting after a dozen. 3 surf perch were mixed in. Last cast of the day was a 18 inch bean. Kept a couple of croakers for the fryer and released the reat. All caught on MORF grub.

18" Bean

Crab/Clam bed- 1 stop shopping
