Went surf perch fishing for the very first time with two close friends and had a blast! We fished from 9am till sunset with a few breaks and a lunch run. We moved around a bit but settled on ocean shores main beach where we had the most success. One friend and i used medium steelhead rods setup with Carolina rigs using Berkley sand worms for bait. My other friend used a rod rated up to 3 0z with a 2 hook bottom rig setup and a disc weight. Both setups produced equaly. Morning was very slow and cold but after high tide it picked up and got better and better as the tide receded up until sunset. We kept somewhere around 20 and lost quite a few as well.
