I decided to dedicate Sunday to scouting out some Coastal Steelhead water before the opener and give carp a go. My home water coastal streams look good. I have a good feeling about this year and cant wait to get out there. Plus it was drop dead beautiful in the Redwoods. Steelhead live in some killer places for sure. Plus I got to hang out at the beach for a while. The entrance to the harbor on the outgoing was no place to mess around. Nasty swell breaking right at the jaws.
The slight rising water we had with the front/rain had carp creeping around the shallows. Especially since this was a warmish front so it had a positive effect on the Carp fishing. So, Carp were a skunk breaker for me and I got to pull on some hard fighting fish. 6 of them to be exact. In the process I was a able to get two wild Goldfish to eat. They arent easy to fool for me so they were a bonus I guess.
