    Winter steelhead 2019 show OFF

    Tanner puts you on fish. He can't land them for you. He WILL tell you what you did wrong, and what to do next time. His trips are not just boat rides to secret spots (as if there are any), but are fishing lessons straight up.

    Rod/reel combination for surf perch

    Devil's Lake

    Surf fishing South Beach

    Excellent place, also across the river at Nye beach is great. Or run down to Seal Rock. Watch the weather and waves very carefully.
