Title: Beaches Around Carlsbad, CA
Post by lingcod on Apr 26th, 2011, 11:05am

Went on a short adventure to Carlsbad State Beach for some fishing in the salt. Camped for 3 days in one of the ugliest campgrounds on the coast. Brian, from Bakersfield, met me there. Fish catching was steady for sharks, halibut, and of course, perch.

On the road:

Urban camping:

Places to get out of the wind and big surf in the afternoons:

Looking north from the campground bluff:

Lots of sharks:

And of course the staple, our beloved perch:

Hey Lingcod,

Great to see you are stretching your legs after your retirement party.  There are some prettier places to fish down there, but what the hey - you caught fish!  A new place to fish is always interesting.
