    Morrison, Sean has it pretty well dialed in, as does ben. I am looking at getting into salt fishing also. We could always get out and hit a beach or two, let me know.

    Nathan Keen of the Avid Angler gives an excellent two session class on fishing Puget Sound. The first session is in the Avid Angler store during an evening. It is followed by an all day session on local beaches fishing for sea run cuts. I am glad to have taken this class. I learned a lot.

    The next class is June 11 and 13.

    Anil and Clark also do a similar set of sessions, often taught by John Aqui.

    not the hog he was looking for
    but you only ever have one first....

    apparently the size of the smile is not related to the size of the fish
    good work!

    took me 11 months of trying

    Oh dang! I recognize that spot AND that fish....that's the same exact fish I caught the other day, same size, same color, same everything! I guess that's what I get for posting secrets on the "web!" :eek: :rolleyes:

    ....seriously tho, nice catch, congratulations!:D Took me over two years to catch my first SRC and my first coho too! And it was worth every minute of the long wait....and my sore arm & shoulder from practicing my horrible casting :beathead: so much too, ha!:beer2:

    Jc:)

    Are you guys freakin' serious?!

    I've been in it less than a month and my frustration level is nearly peaking. I don't think I could last that long without catching anything.

    Hit a put and take lake or stocker pond, get that line stretched then get back out on the beach. The more you fish the sooner you will find a nice pod of bait being balled up and mauled by the rezzies or SRC. You can do it...
