Consistently catching fish from the surf can seem daunting at first, especially if you’re not used to reading tides, structure and swell or using light-line tactics for hard-fighting fish such as big surf perch, spotfin croaker or corbina.

Our sessions are designed to help anglers of any level become confident, consistent surf anglers in just a few hours in a fun and easy-to-understand lesson: "Awesome instructor! I couldn't ask for more. It was a great experience and I look forward to the next time we fish together..." Mike D, CA.

We’ll show you all the tips and tricks the pros use to put those elusive big fish on the sand, plus you’ll learn how to read structure and pick prime days and times to fish. We love providing those lightbulb moments for our clients - when the theory and tuition comes together in the form of that elusive PB or first-of-the-species.


As with all our trips, everything is provided - top quality tackle and guiding services, great bait and equipment - so you can just turn up and know you stand every chance of putting a fish-of-a-lifetime on the sand.


Our preferred venues are in LA and Orange County, Southern California and we fish all year round. We catch the corbina mostly in summer and fall; perch mostly in fall, winter and spring; and croaker all year round.

Our dates are flexible for this type of session and we are happy to be led by your requirements when it comes to arranging a trip of this type. Please, get in contact with us direct with your requirements: +1 (714) 642-5770 or email
