Hit the beach with board member Troutrageous (Eric) today. Cold morning with the temp at 36 when I started fishing. Eric arrived a short time later.
The forecast was for 100% chance of rain after 10am. 10:00 hit and it did rain a bit. One of the few times they've actually gotten the forecast correct. No wind though today which was a plus.

We fished a couple of hours of the outgoing and about three hours of the incoming. Quite a few fish showing themselves. We ended up bring over a dozen fish to hand with many missed opportunities.
Chartreuse was the top color today. I managed several nice fish on a Leland popper with a chartreuse head. I was to lazy to head back to my rig to put on my floater so I just fished it on my intermediate.
Thanks for the fun day on the water Eric. Here are a few pics from today.

Nice! If it was anywhere near as wet as it was at work all day then good for you guys for sticking it out. I forgot rain gear today and was thoroughly drenched at work for 12 hours.

Those are some nice looking kings for sure!

Sop,
Regarding the gloves. I wear a light polypropylene liner then I put a pair of nitrile gloves over them. That allows my hands to stay dry which is key to keeping them warm. Definitely needed them yesterday.
If you wear just nitrile, your hands will sweat inside the gloves. The polyprop liner eliminates that by wicking away any mosture. The liner / nitrile combo really helps cut the wind as well.
If it is really cold I'll throw on a pair of Simms windstopper gloves over the top of those as pictured.
I can still tie knots and it allows me to fish all winter with pretty warm hands.
Not a great system but it works for me. After fishing all day in the rain and dunking my hands in the water yesterday, they were bone dry at the end of the day.

I've been thinking about getting a pair of Kast brand steelhead fishing gloves. I'm just having a hard time swallowing the $80 price.

Good call on the liners, nice low/cost fishing glove system.

Some beauty SRC in the mix, popper stoppers deluxe. That one is stacked!

Brain, glad you and Tim got out and got some action.
There seems to be a big increase in coastal cutts in
the area you were fishing which leeds me to guess that
there are much larger fish to be had....25 to 28 inches?
The biggest I have seen here on North Bay was 22 inches.

State record SRC is 6 pounds even. So im gonna guess there isn't a whole lotta 25"-28" range fish swimming around in the sound.
