Dell Primrose had fished for roosterfish before, but never "Pacific style," from shore with a 12-foot surf rod, a stiff westerly wind blowing in his face and cool waves crashing at his feet. But there he was, on a deserted stretch of beach north of town, with the locals who had taken him there, wet from the waist down, soaking a live mullet a few dozen yards from shore.

Making the trip here for nearly a quarter century, the Los Angeles Billfish Club has developed a fondness for the land and its people. It knows firsthand of the game fish available offshore.
