Anybody planning to fish the hook tonight, they turned me away. Rangers said it was flooded out there. Got there at low tide and the river looked like high tide. The parking lot looked fishy.

I had a feeling you were planning on swimming out there with the rod in your teeth!

Lets hope we have some soft structure created, the last few annoying disturbances made the spots I like much shallower. The large amount of small bait, that was here before this last blow, needs to stay near the shoreline!

Was in IBSP today a lot of guys around me didn?t see one hook up from like 6-9am.

The beach today reminded me of Northern California the beaches there are so flat that the ocean looks like it?s above you. Hope the structure is recreated soon. Also does anyone feel when the surf is like this that it looks like you?re only casting 20 ft in from of you even though you know it must be longer.

I got to IBSP yesterday afternoon and the ocean was very quiet. I saw guys fishing from Seaside to way down in the park and didn't hear of anything but shorts and they were only active early in the morning. I turned my face to the wind then and switched to a lighter setup to throw a bucktail with a curly tail awhile in the bay. There were a good number of stripers ready to play with me, lots of hits and I landed 6 fish from 22" to a feisty 26" er. I started about 5:00 and fished until I couldn't see and was shaking so much it wasn't really fun. That bay water is cooling off and I might need to switch to my neoprene waders or wear longjohns!
I love fishing back there - Some fish hit as soon as the bucktail hit the water at the end of my cast. Others seemed to follow it in and hit as I jigged it at the end of my rod getting ready for my next cast.

HookI, I'm delighted to have anything besides skunks to report! The rod I was using to throw 1/2 ounce bucktails was a 7 foot one piece Tsunami Airwave, I think, with a Penn Battalion 3000 and 10# braid. It's so sensitive I swear I could feel the curly tail wiggling. It's designed as a slo-pitch jigging rod and I'm probably misusing it. I don't care.


Thursday's forecast: SSW wind 11 to 13 kt. Mostly sunny. Seas around 2 ft.

With high tide around 3:00 PM, that sounds like a poor day fishing anywhere around IBSP, but might be good for the Hook after lunch. Opinions?

I really like the set up you have its perfect,
don't tell anyone I'm sending you this info but there is a large pod of migrating bass moving from ELI heading your way , how long it takes to get there who knows , Don't tell anyone here on the board I told you ! tight lines
FYI I might put down the fly rod & hop on the GSP down to the hook ,I'll watch the weather
