In this regard, what size hooks for surf perch?
A popular set-up for surfperch includes two #4 or #2 hooks, some swivels and a pyramid sinker. Three-sided pyramid sinkers are common, easy to cast and tend to roll less in the surf.
Additionally, is surf perch good to eat? About Pacific Surfperch Pacific surfperch is a shore angler's staple. This is a tasty little fish that, from an eating perspective, fits in with its distant cousins the rockfish, snapper, sea bass, porgy, and bream. If you have a choice, choose the redtail surfperch; it is noticeably tastier.
Just so, how do you catch a big surf perch?
How to Catch Surf Perch
- Check that your bait is securely affixed to the hook.
- Cast as far as possible into the surf.
- Reel up slack so you can feel the surf (or a perch) pulling on your rig.
- Wait for a bite.
- Set hook and reel in your dinner.
Can you catch surf perch at night?
Yes, they absolutely bite at nite. I've caught perch throughout the night when I've fished "bucket brigade" perch derbies back in the day. The main thing is to, just like during the day, target them around the high tide.
