In late July, I was heading down to the beach with the family so I brought my waders and beach tackle for a quick last minute fishing trip. This was my first time out on the beach this season and fished for about 1.5 hours. I got on the tidal shelf just after low tide (slack tide) mid morning.
Shortly after arriving I noticed a few Coho jumping within casting distance (at slack tide), so I felt pretty optimistic. I casted a spinner and buzz bombs to no avail. Although, I did see Bon Chovy Fishing Charters land a nice Coho which was encouraging for this fishery, as I’ve been hearing/reading about a lot of poor fishing reports this year.
The weather started off overcast but quickly burned off and turned out to a be a beautiful sunny day! You see all the details in my short YouTube video below.
