So a few of you may have spotted some of my posts in the general forum, and maybe stillwater, but I thought I'd put one here too. So I am moving to Sammamish in about two weeks and will have lots of time to fish this summer before I again relocate at the end of August. I've never had the chance to fish for SRC, and definitely want to try my luck and pit my river, creek, and lake skills against these salt water fish. I will certainly buy a book or two, I've seen that a member or two of the forum have written some pretty good ones. But I just have a few more basic questions to start with. I've fished primarily in Utah and Arizona so I'm new to the Salt scene and my questions will be super basic. 1) I've found that in lakes, a float tube is indispensable for getting to fish, and away from shore to cast. Are float tubes useful at all in salt water fishing, or do things like strong currents, surf, and other salty things prevent effective float tubing? Would shore wading be an option? Or is something like a Kayak required? 2) My set up right now is made for freshwater, can I still use it and simply rinse it off afterwards? The rod would be ok right? What about my line and reel? If these would be damaged by the salt, could anyone recommend some good (very) affordable equipment? 3) I'm sure there are questions I should be asking but don't even know to ask. Educate me. :ray1: Thank you for sharing your knowledge I look forward to C&Ring some beautiful salty fish.
