Planning on hitting the saltwater in the general Des Moines area in the next week or two to try out my boat that I seem to having running good finally. All that is left is some new battery terminals to be put on. I plan to keep the trip close to home until I am sure its running well just in case. Anyone out there have any reports for the area or who can let me know what is bitting and a general area where. I will be launching out of Des Moines and can cover some water in my 15 Arima with a 70HP outboard and would love to fish for something other then SRC unless that all that on the bite right now. I have caught quite a few trout this year and I need to catch something diffrent. I would love to hook into some rockfish or a salmon or two. I have both a 6 weight and an 8 weight ready to go. Any one out there hit the salt recently? Once I have made some trail runs I would be willing to travel further but for now I want to keep the trip close to home.:dunno Any advise on areas to hit or fish to try for would be helpful as well as how deep to try for the fish. While I have caught a few src and one small blackmouth salmon on a fly I am still a rookie when it comes to saltwater fishing but I had fun last year giving it a try and wanting to try again.
