After watching all the fine haibut being caught in huntington beach on saturday’s one surf fly, i really got pumped up and decided to hit one of my favorite halibut holes in the south bay early sunday morning. I had hooked a nice halibut about a month ago in torrance that I dropped at my feet so I made sure this time, my hooks were sharp and went with straight 12 pound tippet. the fly i used was a red, orange and brown clouser tied on a #4 mustad. The hole I was fishing was almost exposed so I had to wait an hour or so, for it to fill in on the rising tide. Once It filled in I got two small halibut around 20 inches each to eat the fly, fair hooked and released. mission accomplished, one small perch later I called it quits and went home. i met a really nice guy name Mitch who watched me land one of my fish. I had heard there was a big perch landed around a month or so ago and totally by coincidence it was Mitch’s fish. It was a 17.75 inch perch that he got using a lucky craft anchovy lure. I asked Mitch if he had a pic and he sent me one on his iphone. We have had some really big fish in the surf this season, but this was the biggest perch I have seen this year! check it out!
