Remember, surf perch are not out very far. Short casts into the rolling surf usually finds them. Many times fisherman cast out beyond them. Once you find them move along the beach with them. Good luck and take a bucket along.

Ona state beach between South beach and Waldport is normally a good bet.
Short Beach between Tillamook Bay and Netarts Bay is an excellent beach for redtails and real consistent because it is locked in by rock formations at both ends and the beach never changes (you don't have to locate a honey hole). Same place year after year.
There use to be some good redtail fishing in the Pacific city area but I haven't kept up with redtails much in recent years. Might give Bernie a call @ Nestucca Country sporting goods @ (503) 965-6410. I might stop in there and inquire Monday or Tuesday when I am up there delivering tackle. Will report back if I find anything encouraging.
Fshklr, where are you getting your sand worms from? Only place I have ever ran into them is while clamming in the bays. You're right, awesome bait for just about anything. Nasty little buggers.
