Now in fish-tacular wide screen! Redtail surf perch are one of my favorite Washington sport fish! They are a plentiful, hard fighting, good eating fish.
I like to fish for them from about mid October to late January. They give birth to live young, and are usually done birthing by late September or early October. The best time to fish for them (in my opinion) is May-August, but I always feel bad if I accidentally keep a pregnant female.
