Fishing is something that helps me unwind, Thats why The Archangel Project helps disabled Veterans and First Responders get outdoors. Anyway we decided to get a away for the weekend and camp near Newport, Oregon. After a great night of playing games around the camp fire the next morning we packed up camp and headed for the South Jetty.

The South Jetty is really beautiful with a lot of spots to fish off the rocks. I decided for my first few casts I would use the cammo gulp worms that you would use for surfperch fishing. The tide was coming in and pushing my bait and weight in circles. I decided to pull in my line and add more weight. I reeled in my line and the first hook had a very small flounder that was hanging onto the cammo worm. I cast about five or six times more catching two more.

At this point I decided since I was set up for Perch fishing I would head to the the surf and do some perch fishing. The beach next to the South Jetty is not Ideal for perch fishing because it is a beach that has ideal conditions for surfing. Since it was a nice day there were a lot of people surfing. I decided to call it quits and go Catch some crabs, but will definitely be back to catch some sea bass.

I will be back when I have a little more time and have Done some more research. but it was a great learning experience and didn’t get skunked. if you ever had the chance to fish the south jetty let me know how you did.
