    Yeah, much better idea.

    as somebody who fished it for years, it's not the kind of fishing you take a kid under 13-14 to do. The technique requires lobbing big spinners over and over and over and over again. Guys can be grouchy and rude down there at times.

    Might want to give Freeport a try, a couple hundred yards below the bridge. Kind of trashy down there though and it can get crowded, especially when the salmon are moving through there.
