1 week ago 2 coho nada since except a few tugs
looks like a tubesnout
lol thought you were kidding...but that looks like a winner.
Love the Pipefish! I had one poking around my waders last week!
Regarding the catching, I hit an old fave during the morning flood and managed several hits and a fine 3" Sculpin to hand. The skunk continues despite my efforts.
I don't know about you, but when I come up with nothing and a sculpin hits my fly, I feel pretty good...
I hauled in this yesterday!
Went out last week in MA9. At one point right at dusk baitfish started raining out of the water and I got a solid tug. Was half asleep and my strip set must have been late. Landed 2 sculpin though.
I should say... at least it keeps my morale from plummeting to the ocean floor!
Fished for over 3 hrs yesterday. One bullhead, got my stones handed to me by about an 11 year old kid. I'm guessing he landed about 20 bull heads, not sure his dad was happy. What does a herring Cost now $.90?
I'm gonna hit it today, on the incoming. Not my favorite tide flow for this beach but hey gotta hit it when I can. Gonna throw some Crazy Charlie's and try out some "slump busters" tied salty style. Micro pine squirel strips rule for small bunny type flies.
Ditto for Tubesnout.
Last week took the new-to-me boat out and the wife and I picked up the daughter and 2 grandkids for a trip. Tried for salmon for awhile at a popular KP spot but no joy. After a few hours of trolling with gear we dropped the daughter and grandchildren off at a local launch and then headed back north and stopped for some fly-casting in a channel that is known for strong currents. Found a spot with a bit of a back-eddy and made a few casts and brought to hand several nice SRC in the 12 to 14-inch class. Also a number of smaller "followers" that just wouldn't commit.

Forgot the name of the beach but this was one of a lot of feeding blackmouth caught on a popper.
