>For those of you who are unaware the grunion were running last night at the beaches. I found out through the newspaper yesterday and i asked my husband if he could shed some more light on what exactly this is. He said that grunion are these littler fishes that are about 4-6 inches long, silver in color and that certain times of the year they come along the shore to lay their eggs on the beach sand as the waves come in. The eggs hatch in about 2 weeks. We were supposed to go last night but the run would be late at night and I’m sure the water is cold right now so we decided to wait till warmer weather arrives. Also my husband says that people aged 16 and over need a fishing license to catch the grunion and that you can’t dig a hole to catch them. You can only use your hands. There’s no limit to how many you can catch. They are good for bait. Take them home and freeze them and cut them up in little cubes as bait when you go fishing. We will go fishing at the imperial beach pier later this month.
