    soooooo i got a 7'11" St. Croix Mojo Inshore Casting rod delivered today. Not what I ordered, but I'm keeping it. Line weight 17-40lb Lure weight 3/4-3 oz. should work good for rockfishing from shore.

    it''s main targets would be halibut, striper, and rockfish/lings. i only wish it fit (even diagonally) in the bed, so i could lock it up. Its about 3" too long on the diagonal. I wanted to bring it to fish to an area near my work.

    I can fit a 7'6" surfboard inside my DCSB. Put it in back driver door angling across to passenger front. Worth a shot :fingerscrossed:

    I got an extra day off today and so i decided to get someline wet. I debated about christening this new St. Croix Mojo inshore, but I decided to go out for surfperch since the surf wasn't expected to be that big today.

    My Okuma 10'6" salmon rod with Penn Fierce 2 has been good for surperch, so i wne t with that. used a 1oz egg sinker Carolina rig and a variety of a Campania grub (red/green glitter flakes color) and Berkely gulp! sandworms (camo and new penny). 2 pretty decent slabs in the bunch.

    oh and after the 3rd fish, the big slab on the grub, i freaked out like a noob and threw my rod/ penn reel into the sand. So i walked back to the truck, where i have an emergency reel - i used to use this Olympic GV013 for trout in the 80s. i'll wager that the mono that is on there is also from the 80s. it was only half-full and when i whipped that rig out there, i almost emptied what was left on the spool. good thing the perch don't run. Anyway, I used it to hook up another 5 fish (oops there's a duplicate in that montage), so today was a good day!

    Badass! Love the classic reel too. Haha. I’ve heard those perch taste amazing and are fairly easy to catch - true?

    They are kindof like crappie/bluegill. good for a little fish fry!

    You have to walk the beach and find the holes/ troughs (which i am still learning). There were about 8 others fishing this beach and I only saw 1 other guy consistently reeling in fish using a hi-lo with bait. Yesterday was one of my better days. Alot of people are fishing for perch these days, so some beaches seem pretty fished out.

    I’m actually shocked you haven’t caught one on the dropshot yet. I’ll get one on my ned rig every so often. I caught one last month out at lake Sonoma on one of the big TRD ned worms - couldn’t believe it.

    The most and biggest crappie I’ve ever caught were at lake Comanche while trolling for trout. Down about 40’ while trolling Speedy Shiners. The first time I caught one the fish was so big I couldn’t at first figure out what is was. Only other crappie I’ve caught were dinks when I was a kid. Those big crappie fought like large bass and are some of the best eating fish around.

    That’s awesome! Yeah I would agree, one of the best tasting fish to eat! My eating list in order is walleye, crappie, bluegill, then bass. Lol
