If you plan on walk'n the rocks I'd plan on a rattlesnake bite kit an orthopedic surgeon and plenty of single malt to ease the pain of the ten thousand mosquito bites. :o

Why don't one of you contact Ray Russ! He fishes this stretch weekly.  He just doesn't talk about it too much 'cause he doesn't "want a bunch of hot spotters catchin his fish!" But if you approach him in just the right manner say'n "you're the man Ray"  "Nobody knows it like you Ray." "We need you Ray!" You can take one of your guns and kill something while your there Ray." "We'll all go blind folded Ray." "We just want to see you catch big fish Ray!" He just might go for it and from what I have heard...well I'm not supposed to talk!

...or you can just sit at home wish'n you were RAY!

        And if  you  plan on walking on the rocks at any time , I recommend a pair of old golf shoes with sharp spikes.

I'm in! Signed up and will be ready to go. Really looking forward to this one, I've never been able to align schedules and make this event. Camping on the island... cool!

Jetty fishing - gotta be ready for big fish. Sounds like I need to go shopping for heavy bite tippet and big chicken-looking flies.

General Discussion / Re: When to use a full sinking fly line?
« Last post by Puck on April 23, 2014, 03:42:59 AM »
1.  When fishing in deeper water (+10ft) in fresh waters
2.  Using a floating fly on a sinking line for LMB.  The line drags the fly top the bottom as you strip, and rises when you stop.
3.  In an area that has a tidal current.  The sinking line can get the fly to the fish.
4.  In the surf a floating line is a tangle waiting to happen.  An intermediate works, but the large fish seem to be deeper, so I like to use a sinking line.
5.  Brushpiles.  I'll throw a bendback on a sinking line into a brush pile and drag the fly over every tree limb.  Heavier tippet is required.
6.  Trolling.  In know, you don't troll with a fly rod, but when you are moving in a kayak from spot to spot, the sinking line drug behind seems to get more hook-ups.

Yes Matt, the Skimmer has been booked.

Chris

Sweet.

Who wants to see about renting rooms here: http://www.rockportbayfrontcottages.com/rates.html

They've got a lit fishing pier and it's about a half mile from where we'll get onto the Skimmer.
