    Forgot to name the beach, plug your popper fly, remind us of the next Orvis flyout SRC trip, and date for the next Orvis beach fishing presentation and something about occupy Skagit.

    He is saying he caught many feeding blackmouth using a popper.

    Did any of your blackmouth break the 22" size barrier? Thanks for the report.

    Is that not a SRC? Not the best picture for ID, but there seem to be spots below the lateral line and white gums with more yellowish fins. Maybe I'm missing something here.

    I fished a popular west side MA9 beach from my kayak on Sunday. I launched at 5:45am, just after first light, and fished until about noon. I did some trolling as well as casting and stripping using mostly a chartreuse, pink, and white clouser. I had one strike while trolling but it was off after a head shake so I'm not sure it what it was. Other than that I saw no activity other than tons of bait fish, sea otters, and a big sea lion who popped up surprisingly close and barked at me for a few seconds. At about 10:30 I switched to casting a sculpin pattern and caught a few SRCs and a shiner perch. Beautiful day but SLOW. Anybody else seeing things pick-up?

    Fished a MA 9 beach this a.m. Got one really nice Coho, saw 2 other caught. Missed another at my feet. In a couple of weeks it should really start to pick up...hopefully!
    BTW-posted a pic of the fish in the gallery.
