    one thing you really need to look out for in the Sound after a major flood event is the floaters and deadheads. keep a sharp eye, especially when you're up on plane and traveling.

    This is exactly why I like all of my "secret" beaches so much, fishing is as good if not better than that spot and and no crowds or guides ever there. :D

    It's only a problem if you are answering, Tommy... or at least that's how I keep answering myself.

    Yeah, I've noticed no difference but my favorite little spot had a good number of visitors yesterday... I'll be out there today hoping that suckers gotta work ;) Nice to meet a couple more forum members though, and managed a rezzie on the periphery of the pod. Missed a two-hit short take in one of my favorite SRC haunts on the way back to the truck... damn. GF loved that area and got loads of cool photos. Screw flooding, the salt be fine.

    I do what I can Jake, I hear that you and Clint did quite well for your self at that little secret beach. Just be careful what car you park at that one, there have be some theft issues in the past. I have several new beaches that I think maybe flying under everyones radar that I am planning on visiting this week, hopefully they will be good enough to add to the line up.

    So your cars get stolen more often where the floods meet the salt and there are secret spots to catch your post-smolt coho when the water is muddy?

    Not so much as stolen as windows busted out. Yes there are secret spots to catch them and the water is clear.
