Surf fishing keeps getting better every day. After a week or so of South swells the water is about four degrees warmer and the fish are biting. Sand crabs are beginning to pop up everywhere now. Your best place for soft crabs of all sizes will be under any pier at high tide. Find them there just below the high tide mark behind each piling. Along the Newport coast area you’ll find millions of red crab that have washed ashore. Don’t be afraid to pin one on and cast out. They hammer the perch and yellowfin croaker! Corbina have still been a bit scarce but traditionally they go into a feeding frenzy around June 1–so look for that!
