My first taste of corbina fishing came a couple of years back, when I accompanied angler and San Diego-based outdoor writer Paul Sharman on a trip to Torrey Pines State Beach. In the chilly gray of 5:45 a.m., we slipped on old running shoes and surf trunks and bundled up in fleece from the waist up. We timed our arrival to coincide with a minus tide, which revealed the troughs, cuts and holes on which we'd focus our efforts later in the morning.
