Already bookmarked, thanks.

Re: Any action o the surf yet?

Ray, I think I am not supposed to post links on this forum. Any way you can put links on the forum page for those sites? Those are the most useful sites outside of fishing reports.

HELLO RAY,
We SPOKE ON THE ROAD AT POVERTY  LAST FRI AFTERNOON 5/1 WHEN I WAS COMMING OFF THE BEACH, THAT DAY WAS BUST, AS I TOLD YOU BUT THE SAT AND SUN WERE GREAT, BETWEEN THE 4 OF US ALOMOST LIMITED OUT ON STRIPPERS  BOTH DAYS!!!

Re: Any action o the surf yet?

Struck out again. Anglers on the right and left also struck out. Anglers 2 over from the guy next to me were pounding them, including a 38". I have yet to catch one of these things. Am I doing something wrong? I am using a 4oz pyramid with a fish finder. SHould I be using one of those Sputnik sinkers?

Re: Any action o the surf yet?

Sputnik sinkers work well but I doubt if it would make a difference.  they hold better with a lot of current.   As long as you are holding bottom you should be good.

Since I talked to you.  Action has been decent on the fly and artificials.   I have had bass on the fly each trip with the water temps from 51 to 54 degrees.  Not a lot but fishing is getting better.   Had two keepers on the fly this week.  28 1/4 and one 36 1/2 inches.   Both of which I released to fight another day.   All my fishing has been late afternoon into dark.
