I've been doing river and lake fishing for some years now, but just recently learned that SRC fishing is a thing here in Puget Sound. So I turned my eyes to saltwater beaches around Seattle area. In the past few days, I made a couple of scout trips just to find a place to start, and did a little fishing, but not a lot. I've been to all parks from Carkeek to Dash Point, plus a couple of "secret" public beaches, which are basically front yards for beach houses. Tiring, but I did learn a few things from these scout trips: 1. a stripping basket is almost a must (so I made one out of a Sterilite basket)； 2. room for back casting is important, especially when it's high tide; 3. free floating sea weed is a big problem because they can easily get caught on the fly and line; 4. wind is even bigger a problem on ocean beaches than lake beaches. Other than above, I believe that sandy beaches do not attract fish because there is nothing to eat on the sandy bottom, like Golden Garden Park. But for beaches like the south side of Alki Point where it's rocky and with a lot of sea weed, I believe they provide food, and thus fish. Also, I like steep slope beaches like Lincoln Park, rather than slow slope ones like Carkeek. So far I have't decided where to go for my first real beach fishing for SRC, I just want to list my criteria out and run it by people to see if I missed anything or I'm on the right track? (Oh, they say SRC fishing in Puget Sound is year round, right?) Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.
