Other Fishing Locations in Newport Beach
Fishing Beaches off Newport Beach
Newport Beach has miles of beaches and endless opportunities for great surf fishing. Fish the incoming tides with blood worms, mussel, or sand crabs (right from the sand) for great action on barred sand perch, corbina, yellowfin croaker, and spotfin croaker. Halibut and occasionally a white sea bass can also be caught and can make for quite a surprise. Light line such as 6 pound test is recommended as heavier line often will deter bites. Look for pockets of deep water along the beach and have fun.
Fishing Newport Beach Jetties
Along with miles of coastline, several jetties are available to fish from. The jetties were built to slow erosion of sand and the jetties are shorter than those located at the mouths of harbors. Jetties are located from 28th street to 56th street at 4 street intervals. The jetties are not long enough to get to the deep water species that can be encountered off end of piers, but the jetties offer easy access to shoreline waters beyond the shore break. Try a swimbait with light line for halibut especially during grunion runs.
Fishing Newport Pier & Balboa Pier
Newport Beach has two main piers: the Newport Pier and Balboa Pier. Both of these piers are unique in that at the end of each pier very deep water is located in very close proximity. The result is some very good runs of bonito and barracuda during certain times of the year. Large sharks, both thresher and mako, can be hooked as well off the end of the piers. Mackerel are the most prevalent catch and can offer nonstop action. For bonito a small, shiny lure or even feather can work very well.
