Cousins Tackle to host free surf fishing open house, June 28


HUNTINGTON BEACH — Cousins Tackle Corp. is inviting surf fishing enthusiasts from across Southern California to its Huntington Beach, Calif., factory for a day of fun, food and angling education.

The first annual Cousins Surf Fishing Open House will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 28, and will include a surf fishing panel seminar bringing together some of the best light tackle beach anglers in the state. Speakers will include Bill Varney, book author and angling educator; Jason Scribner, owner of the website; surf fishing bait provider Rick Klein, and three others. These top anglers will share their secrets for consistently catching big perch, corbina, croaker, halibut and other popular sport fish from Southern California beaches. All aspects of light-tackle surf fishing will be covered, including tackle selection and rigging, bait selection, care and proper presentation, “reading” the shoreline, using artificial lures and more.  

Another highlight will be ongoing guided tours of Cousins’ state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, where fishing enthusiasts can see for themselves how quality American-made rods, lure skirts and lures are built. 

In addition, Cousins will be providing a free lunch and refreshments to all in attendance, along with a Cousins goody bag. Additional tackle manufacturers, industry representatives and fishing-related media outlets will be on hand to interact with visitors, including Lucky Craft Lure Company, Promar/Ahi,, Phil Freidman Outdoors, Fish Taco Chronicles, and others. Southern California Cousins dealer Fisherman’s Hardware will be offering special deals on Cousins’ Bill Varney Signature Series surf rods, as well as other Cousins rod models for all styles of salt and freshwater fishing.
