Ventura County Surf Fishing Locations!!!

Where the hell are they guys? I live in Camarillo and am always around the local harbors (Port Hueneme, Channel Islands Harbor) Does anyone know of some good spots in those areas? Or do I simply have to cruise South on 1 to find the fish?

Hitman, Nice to see another VTA Co. member on the boards.

??? Um, Ventura county had some of the most renowned surf fishing locatons in California and especially some of the most popular in SO Cal.


These are some of the more popular and productive locations:


a.) 5th Street at OXnard Shores (Oxnard)

b.) Santa Clara River Mouth (Ox / Vent)

c.) Arnolds Rd. (Oxnard /Hueneme)

d.) Leo Carillo State Beach (just south of Point Mugu)

e.) Power plant (Oxnard)

f.) Rincon state beach (just north of Ventura on PCH/101fwy)

g.) Hollywood Beach Flats (Oxnard - behind the Rudder Room on Hollywood Beach)

if you're planning a day out on the surf ...PM me and I might join you!

If you're in the Channel Islands harbor, check out the area in front of the Rudder Room as well as the end of the jetties. I've caught lots of good fish off those spots including a big batray with a 51 inch wingspan next to the rudder room!

First and foremost, you should have a game plan as to what type of fish(s) you would like to target and how you plan on targeting them. Since the water temps are above average, you should be leaning towards targeting fish that thrive in warmer water.

There are several short jetties just south of the Ventura Pier. Try dropshotting 3" plastics for halibut and bigger BSP and YFC. If the halibut are running a bit larger, than try using a 5" plastic.

You can try various smaller swimbaits and Gulp! products (especially if the fishing is slow). Dropshot 2-3" Gulp Shrimp and 3" smelt and C-Rig camo sandworms for all the other smaller fish, such as perch and croakers. Check the tides and fish them accordingly.

If you need sand crabs, try checking in inches of water near rocks and other large structures (especially pier pilings).

Hitman,

Best thing to do is get with some of your VTA Co. bretheren who know the area well, and know the grains of sand by their names (lol). I've got my "spots" and are more than willing to spend a day on the sand and show you the Hot Spots (various locations if desired). I'm sure there's a handful of VTA Co. members who'd join in for a day of surf fishing cameraderie. PM me if you'd like the info and want to get together to fish.
