Upcoming Seminars

Bart Hall Show Long Beach

March 29 – April 2

Hey friends, Benjie, Corey and I are having a two hour seminar before the Friday March 31st Bart Hall Long Beach Show.  We’d love for you to come and hear some expert tips on making you a better surf and halibut angler.

The event is to benefit CCA California, who is now embroiled in the fight to keep Executive Order 30 x 30 from taking your fishing away.  Your support helps them to have a chance at winning this fight.

Along with a great seminar on surf and halibut fishing we’ll also be having a giveaway and raffle to benefit CCA California.  Your ticket includes the seminar and entrance fee to the Friday Bart Hall Show.  See you there!

This seminar will sell out so please purchase your tickets today.  You Must Purchase Tickets In Advance


Afterwards, stop by and say Hi at our booth.
2023 On-The-Beach Clinic Schedule–coming soon!



See you on the beach for our next on-the-beach Surf Fishing Clinic.  You’ll learn everything you’ll need to know about  light-line surf fishing, baits, rigging, equipment and finding fish at the beach.  We supply all the bait, instruction, donuts and coffee too!  Class size is limited and will fill quickly.  You’ll find all the details below…
