About Surf Fishing in Socal
My name is Nick Heid and I began surf fishing when a friend of mine introduced me to the topic. We picked a day and he took me to one of his favorite spots. I caught my first perch and watched him reel in a 4-foot Guitarfish. From that point on, I was hooked! Ever since, I’ve fished an average of 2-3 times per week during the summertime, and gained value expertise on the subject. More specifically, I have learned so much about surf fishing in SoCal.
I started out just like anybody would; get to the beach, find the sand crabs, throw the hook out and hope for the best. Over the years, I’ve caught countless amounts of fish, but most of all, I’ve gained an incredible amount of knowledge about the surf, its conditions and how it affects the tendencies of fish. I love all kinds of fishing, but surf fishing is hands down, my favorite type and it’s become my passion! I want to pass on my expertise as I know first hand, the more you know, the more you catch.
For that reason, I am now a CA Department of Fish and Wildlife licensed fishing guide. You can book a guided session through this link.

Other than sand worms and Sand crabs have you ever tried shrimp for bait
I have yet to try shrimp. I’ve heard some success from shrimp but not a whole lot.
