    Is 6m more or less than two years ago? Are the chum numbers also listed on that sheet more or less than the past few years of diminishing returns on that species?

    theres no secret spot, most any beach will have loads. they migrate along the shoreline. if ya have a float tube, or pontoon boat, and an heavy enough anchor, (ya need it, tide flows). just get 20 feet of water under ya and target the jumpers. ya cant miss. however, an 800 lbs sealion, pulling a pink off your line or stringer, or angry buzz bombers targeting you, might be a little too exciting.

    A good question, the answer to which is loaded with possibilities.

    Bill- I know what ya mean cause' pearl pink is my f a v o r i t e colour in the world too. So here's a link to the shooting head, a blog consisting of nice amounts of cool gear, cool fishing schtuff, and plenty of HOTTT trim: http://www.shootinghead.com/

    But there was that one fly dude that was there just about every time... And for our 200 or so fish we caught when he was there, he didn't catch a one.... And refused our offers to get him dialed in.

    Looking forward to seeing hundreds
    of drooling droids flinging hardware
    shoulder to shoulder at Lincoln Park.

    They catch a fish....(woo who!),
    bonk it and leave it on the beach
    in the sun for 2 hours.

    Yummy.

    You should set up a branch at the Dash Point pier. The people watching there is absolutely amazing.
