Between Two and Twenty Fathoms
by Capt Mark Wisch...
Over the years countless anglers while shopping in the store, coming up after seminars or stopping me on the docks to visit have asked that question. It’s not an easy one to answer as “Where” is just part of the formula for success. There are many more critical components and all are vitally important to your success as an angler. On these pages, whether you are just starting out or a seasoned, savvy pro you will find the answers. Between the covers are the tips, tricks, secrets and spots necessary to make your time on the water far more productive.
Portuguese Bend to Dana Point
This private boater’s handbook of strategies is your complete reference to the waters between Portuguese Bend on the Palos Verdes Peninsula down to the bold headland of Dana Point. Inside you’ll find complete coverage of famed locations like the Horseshoe Kelp, Izor’s Reef and the Huntington Flats. Additionally there are new chapters in this expanded second edition covering the halibut fishery in the Long Beach Outer Harbor and the South Coast. There is also much more text on how to target the tanker-grade seabass we’re finding as the fishery recovers. And of course, more stories and pictures to back up the fact we are so fortunate to have such fantastic fishing opportunities right here in our Southern California coastal waters.
“Inside you’ll discover…”
*Find, fish or hoop hundreds of the secret wrecks, rocks and hard bottom spots the locals don’t want you to know. Some of these spots have never been shared before!!!
*Target the larger barracuda, bonito, sand and calico bass, halibut, white seabass, yellowtail and lobsters living in, on or around those spots.
*Select the hooks, sinkers, lures, line and other gear to make you a far more effective angler or hoop-netter.
*Assemble your arsenal of matching rods and reels designed to handle all our coastal species and changing conditions.
*Outfit your private boat with the proper gear designed to make your precious time on the water more fun and productive.
