First off let me introduce myself as I'm new to the forum and this will be my first post. I've never fly fished in salt water and have been reading every post I can find on here to school myself so I can then ask intelligent questions. So I guess my first question is this, Would it be worth my while to take the ferry to Kingston and fish the beach to the left of the dock? I've always wondered if it would be a productive spot? I understand that every beach is different and good fishing will depend on time of year, weather, tide, etc, etc, etc. But I'd like to hear from those who fish there and what you'd recommend I try. I'm not asking for your sweet spot at all, and understand I must earn my own secret spots by putting in the time to find them. My plan is to just head to a beach knowing what the tide will be doing at what times and bring along some top water sand lance patterns and clouser minows to toss out there. I've got a 9ft 5wt rod and a floating line at the moment but I'm looking into getting another reel with an intermediate sink tip line on there as well. I did use the search function but didn't find too much on Kingston. On another note, I do live in Ballard and it's just a short car trip down to Carkeek Park or Golden Gardens but I haven't heard many good things about productivity on those beaches.
