newport oregon jetty fishing rock bass august 23 2014
went out to newport, oregon today for some rock bass fishing. landed 2 but only got 1 on camera as I didn't have my gopro on for the first fish. they were far and in between. the newport jetties gets a lot of pressure. you have to try a different spot if you're not catching anything in one area. covering more area is the key here. just be careful as those big boulders are dangerous! I was using a curley tail grub with a 1 oz sinker tied about 2.5" below the grub. jigging it along the rocks netted me those 2 rock bass. check out my other rock bass fishing videos if you like this one. thanks for watching.

Oregon Salmon Fishing
I've lived in Oregon since 2001 and I've always wanted to catch a salmon. For Lynn and I, we never did any salmon fishing together here in Oregon, so we headed out to the Siuslaw River on the coast and hoped for the best. We used a simple setup of just a 2-3 oz weight and a spinner. We were slow trolling going about 2-3 miles per hour. The water depth ranged from 12-40 feet.

How to Fillet a Surf Perch
Here is a short video about how to fillet a surf perch. I'm not expert in preparing these fish and I don't claim to be the best at filleting these guys, but this is just my method. Having a sharp fillet knife helps a lot, and be careful not to rush it. Also, it's best to bleed out your fish so it'll taste better and stays fresh.

Catch and cook surf perch - Oregon coast surf fishing
Surf fishing on the Oregon coast is good year round. No one month is better than another month. When I'm surf fishing on beach, I stay in one spot only for a short time, maybe about 10 minutes at the most. If there are no fish, then I move to another spot. Today, I decided to bring my portable grill and cook the perch right on the beach.

Surf Fishing with a Tiny Crankbait
Here is a link to get the tiny crankbait from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2DoPhXR. I tied the lure directly to my dropper loop below the 2 gulp sandworms. For this setup, I used my usual 2 oz disc sinker, which lays flat on the sand and doesn't roll as much in the rough surf. These redtails surf perch can be caught year round here on the Oregon coast. The best times to go fish for these guys are during an incoming high tide.

how to care clean your fishing rods reels
cleaning off your gear and tackle after a surf fishing trip is pretty important. I've lost many gear before from neglect. I first rinse off my reel and waders. For my reel, I only do a light spray for about 10 seconds. I rinse off my waders pretty thoroughly. I also empty out my tackle box and rinse out the hooks, pliers, bait jar, weights, and anything else that touches salt water - which is pretty corrosive.

I'm going to briefly talk about the gear and tackle I use when I'm surf fishing. my main surf rod is a 10' salmon steelhead pole I got from cabela's. and the reel I use a shimano stradic FK reel size 5000, which I spooled 40# braid onto. I usually use a #2 baitholder hook but an octopus hook also work. for my rig, I use a 2-hook rig with the weight at the bottom - a 2oz weight is all you really need. this video is just a basic guide to help you gear up for surf fishing. feel free to leave questions for me. tight lines!

trout rig for bottom fishing
ok, guys, this is my first how-to video. this video shows you how I setup a carolina rig when bottom fishing for trout. I'm aware that there are many ways to setup a trout rig for bottom fishing, but this method has worked well for me. weight --- I use a 3/8 to a 1/2 oz sliding weight. I even use a 1 oz depending on the speed of the current. bead --- optional but doesn't make a lot of difference for this trout rig. barrel swivel --- I use about a size 2 or size 3 barrel swivel. for the most part, it doesn't matter much really - long as you don't use one that weighs a pound leader --- I like long leaders because I want my bait (floating powerbait eggs) to float way off the bottom. I find that I get more strikes this way. 4 feet to 5 feet is what I use. use whatever you are comfortable with. because I fish for trout, they don't pull hard at all so I use a 4# to 8# line weight. hook --- I use a #2 or #4 bait holder hooks. (hook brand does NOT matter one bit) for presentation, just cast out and wait. I usually check my bait about every 20 minutes. then cast to a different place than before. if you don't get any bites, try different baits, or cast a lure out. ok, that's it for now. in my next video I'll show what bait I use for trout fishing. thanks for watching

fishing on a river bank with corn
took out my son, kevin, down to the willamette river for some bank fishing. he loves to go with me, and doesn't care what we're catching as long as we're catching fish. we used corn as bait and didn't really have a specific fish were wanted to target. it was a slow summer day and would be happy to catch whatever was biting at the time. we used a #4 octopus hook and a 10# mono leader on a carolina rig.

with the surf being too rough, we decided to hit the south jetty for some rock fishing. it was my first time catching a lingcod from the rocks. he was dead on 22" so he was a keeper. I used a 7" bass worm for bait and a sinker weight of 1 to 1.5oz. this was during an incoming high tide.

trout fishing with a rooster tail spinner
I'm fishing from the bank with a rooster tail spinner in this video. the first part I was fishing at a lake trolling with a rooster tail. the presentation is pretty straight forward: cast out as far as you can and "SLOWLY" reel it in; sometime you want to twitch your rod and pause for a brief moment. for trout fishing, I'm using a 1/8 oz rooster tail spinner. stocked trout aren't so big so any bigger size might produce less bite. I use a 7'6" rod that is rated at light action. line weight for the rod is at 4-10 #. I was using different colors of rooster tails, and didn't find one color that worked the best; it seems trying different colors is the key. mix it up if one color don't work and always make sure to vary your retrieve speed. thanks for watching.

Catch and cook dungeness crab - Oregon coast crabbing
We went crabbing in Coos Bay, Oregon. It has been a long time (over a month?), and I'm finally back on the water again. For crab bait, we used chicken. We soaked our crab pots for a little over 1 hour. The crab pot I used is a Promar Heavy Duty crab pot, which I bought off Amazon. It's one of the best crab traps out there. We caught 30 crabs during this trip, and cooked some up afterwards. Here's a link to Mando's channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5UhTw_v1Eb9Z5HBJoeJvOA

oregon surf fishing during incoming high tide
I usually look for a beach that has a lot of sandcrabs when I'm surf fishing on the beach. it doesn't always mean that the perch are there but is usually a good indication that perch is around. I'm usually switching spots a lot when fishing is slow, and usually I find fish not far from my starting point. here, I'm fishing during low tide, but it is an incoming high tide. remember that the best time to go surf fishing is around high slack tide. rod: 10' salmon/steelhead rod, size 5000 reel with 40# braid, 5 foot leader on a #2 eagle baitholder hook.

surf fishing tips - drying gulp sandworms bait
Gulp sandworms are definitely the most effective bait I've used while surf fishing on the Oregon coast. Yet, they are a little spendy. I'm going to show you what I do to get more mileage from these baits. I simply put them on a paper towel and let them dry out a little bit. This way they become tougher, and won't tear off your hook so easily when a fish bites. Surf fishing tip: remember to put them in a small jar when done.

How to setup Gulp Sandworms for surf fishing to catch more fish - Oregon Coast
I'm going to show you a simple way to setup your rig with Gulp Sandworms to fish the Oregon coast. I recommend drying out your sandworms outside in the warm weather for about 3-4 hours.

Be sure you learn how to tie this HI-LO rig using a dropper loop. It's very effective for surf fishing.

Oregon surf fishing - Catch and clean surf perch
The best time to go surf fishing on the Oregon coast is usually during a calm surf. You can catch surf perch from the beach year round. I look for swells that are around 2-3 feet. I use an Okuma Celilo salmon rod, and a 2 oz weight. I setup my rig using a hi-lo rig with a 2 oz weight at the bottom. My technique is pretty simple: just toss it out into the surf and wait, say 1 minute, and then I start to slowly reel back in.

oregon surf fishing
having fun surf fishing on the oregon coast. it's spring time so the redtail surf perch are biting like crazy right now. I was a little surprised that none were of any good size, but we did managed to land a few over a pound - which are perfect size for the frying pan. just remember when you're surf fishing on the oregon coast to 'never' turn your back on the ocean. the surf is usually rough, and waves come at you with great speed and height. it's dangerous and unpredictable so use caution. the oregon coast is always windy and rough, and one should always be careful. gear, tackle, bait. I was using a 10' surf rod with my standard bottom surf rig. for bait, I was using gulp sandworms on a #2 baitholder hook (any hook style will work, and #2 works best for me). I use this setup 99% of the time I go surf fishing on the oregon coast. thanks for watching, and hope to see you on the surf.
