it’s that time…


A cruising Corbina in shallow water. photo by Al Quattrocchi

With water temps right where they need to be we have seen many nice size fish cruising the shallow surf line this week. With many new anglers out corbina sight casting, scrambling for prime real estate, please be mindful to give others space when casting. I caution the posting of backgrounds on social media, they tend to give away areas we have discovered and been fishing for many more years than the new wave of anglers have. Have fun but please be respectful.

    Ok that’s rich. respectfully, You have been promoting the hell out of SoCal corbina fishing for years . Looks like you’re reaping what you sow. Or something like that.

    • There’s a fine line between teaching and promoting. I believe we learn from the journey not the destination. I never tell people where to fish, I teach them how to fish. I think social media can be a curse especially when people give away hard earned places to the masses, many not good custodians of the resources?

  2. Nothing comes between the online angler community more than the notion of spot burning, no matter which coast. In our area, we have a local tackle shop that will post a video of anything remotely accessible from land… as a result, spots have been shut down due to the mass trash that follows popularity… probably not as much an issue with fly anglers or those fisheries really mostly inaccessible to the bucket brigade. As to making space, social media is a curse we have to live with, but eventually those who blast everything do tend to learn the mistakes of their ways and things balance out… for a while at least. Even the aforementioned tackle shop has learned to a degree that education is at least as important to information, if we expect to all be able to enjoy whatever niche of sport fishing we choose.

    Love this blog, though it is unlikely I’ll ever be able to get out to the left coast to pursue.
