    Haven't done any fishing. Done alot of crabbing off the dock. Tons of crabs down there. All the fishing that I have seen is people out in the bay in their boats.

    I fish for Silvers and Chinook at the jaws. But the fihing won't pick up till mid to late August. Try fishing closer to the end of the south jetty on an incoming tide. When the current picks up keep the same motor speed so your herring fish right and back troll along the south jetty, then motor up to the end of the jetty and do it again, again again.. Sivers are at about 5 to 7 pulls, usually right under the back of the boat. Chinook more towards the middle right on the bottom. If you catch a flounder when fishing for the chinook, you're probably at the right depth. The bite best as the tide tops out ( incoming). Warning** if the swells are up go in as you can get pulled out to the rough bar real easy on an outgoing tide.

    If you see a lot of birds over real small anchovies, fish small hoochies / or flies for the silvers about 50 ft plus from the birds. Go through the birds or bait balls and you can ruin the bite for everyone.


    Tight lines..
