    I fished the troughs and rips rips near me. Cast close in the trough, cast out farther and drift in to the trough. Could have my lack of knowledge, but I saw no others with fish.

    Where did the Perch go? Fished with my son and daughter in law Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning after high tide. One big fat skunk! Moved a little up and down the beach from “The Sanctuary “. Talked with several other guys. Not a fish in sight.
    Maybe next time.
    Nice weekend though, weather outstanding.

    Ok, nice weekend with the better half, on her birthday. She told me to bring the poles. Using my 8.5 ft, X11 spinning Steelhead rod. Throwing 1oz with a plastic slider, 24 inch 10lbs floro leader, size 2 hook, gulp sand worm. Total of 4 fish. All released. I found it was best 1.5 hours or more after high tide. Talked with guy next to me. Didn’t understand throwing back. He said the perch make great sashimi. Next time the soy sauce and wasabi will be with me.

    When using those gulp sand worms its best to hold your rod in hand so you can feel the bite.Usually if they bite first time and miss they seem to know the difference from fresh and won't come back for a second hit. If your not getting bites move and up and the beach. Good luck

    Got here about 4:00. Walked on the beach. A difinite trough and channel causing rip tide, in front of resort. Wife said men were fishing there when she was here in November with her sisters.
