    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.
