Points and narrows. Or known highly productive water.
I'll be out early, should be a fun slide down the hill if nothing else.
club outing tomorrow cant wait tides look good and have lots of members and guests coming weather is supposed to get better in am
What beach so I can avoid it?
Fished a narrows with a bit of a point 6am-8am. There was a decent current, considering the tiny tide, although I didn’t see bait, birds, or seals...the beach was dead, no bites.
Will fish a better tide soon.
Fished a point till about 8:30 this morning. Lots of birds eating bait again, not a lot of current. Cormorants were eating something big out a ways, herring or small coho, not sure. No blackmouth but I took a coho home for dinner tonight.

Ended up having to take my wife to work this morning so decided to sit the morning out and get some more tieing in.
Went out for a few hours this evening. One quick grab right before dark. Tide was super low so spent some time walking the beach and found what looks like a snail of some sorts.
No blackmouth today. Not even a small one. I did hook around 8 rezzies between 2 and 5. It was kind of slow overall but a few grabs made it fun on the outgoing tide.
Also I kept hooking wild fish, the fish gods knew I brought the cooler today... typical.
Beach nap, now that sounds nice!
Went from calm at 630 to 25-30 mph winds at 7. Doesn't look like it's going to calm down anytime soon. Good luck to anyone out there fishing!
Just gonna drop this off on us?! Nicely done!
What was the eat like? down deep or on surface?
I was out with the wife, wind was still brutal but managed to find a spot where I could semi use it to my advantage.
birds started diving on bait shortly after we got there. Made the best cast I could with the wind to my back right. Grabbed it 3 times on the first cast 2nd cast hooked up on the first strip.
Wife had no idea what was going on as she looked for rocks on the beach. Finally got her attention to lend a helping hand if needed. After landing it she says she wants to catch one. She knows very little about fishing and didn't want a crash course in throwing a fly. So I run (as best I could in neoprene chest waders) back to the truck to grab a gear rod and a green/white Clarks spoon. Birds were just about gone when I made it back. She made a couple casts with no luck.
Using floating line, 10' 15lb leader and 6 second count down.
Man, that's great! I was thinking about that very spot actually and wondering what the odds would be there. There's a good kelp bed off the point, at least in the summer. I kinda grew up in that bay but really only fished the point for lings and rock fish when I was a kid.
