Each lesson is tailored to our clients skill level and needs - young or old, beginner or veteran - and we have a wide variety of venues and techniques to suit all ages and levels of mobility.
On a 4 hour practical tuition session, we'll hit one of our favorite beaches and cover the best surf fishing rigs, baits, tackle, species ID, how to find structure, how to cast, reading a beach, sand crab hunting, tides, swells, best times to fish, great apps to use, how to handle stingrays, and everything else you need to catch lots of species for fish tacos from the beach, solo or with family.
The session price also includes a detailed, laminated surf fishing playbook and tackle consultation service to help you get rigged up correctly after the session.
