San Diego Fishing Questions

Recommended Posts

Ebiz

I'm going to be in San Diego in two weeks and am hoping to get some fishing in, even if it means just from shore. Have a few questions if any of you have been there done that before.

I've heard that you can fish on any city pier without needing to purchase a license, does anyone know if this is correct?

If I bring one of my medium action spinning rigs is there anything special I need to worry about when fishing in salt water?

What kinds of lures/bait would be good to have?

How in the world do you know what's edible or even in season?

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I'll be down in Laguna Beach later this month. I surfed around to find fishing info and found plenty on the net...just search for southern california fishing or something like that.

I know that other states allow you to fish on a gov. owned pier w/o a license, don't know about cali tho.

Second I would talk to a bait shop in the area about the regs and seasons.

And regarding the rod and reel, just rinse off with fresh water at the end of the day and they will be fine.

No lisence needed! could you drive a few miles north to Carlabad? Fish the warm water jetty from the power plant its great shore fishin there use a cat fish rig,in Oceanside in the harbor you can buy bait, Blood worms work Ghost shrimp work! If you get to Oceanside just board a 1/2 day boat fairly cheep they supply everything you just have to show up.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
