would be happy to share what i know... which isn't a lot. i just keep trying things.
have had success with squid and tuna so far. others down there use clams and shrimp and herring. i am starting to think they'll take just about anything.

if you didn't catch my other post, i have been using golf balls as weights- its cheap.

you cannot be really afraid of heights.... the cliff makes me wary.

if theres more you have questions about i'll do my best to answer. if you let me know when you are headed here i can try to meet you there if you'd like. my time is really flexible, which is code for i am not working.

Please tell me that is some sort of typo. Did you mean golf balls not GOLD balls. :lol: I can't afford that kind of fishing. Sounds like you are doing well in Boiler Bay. They only thing I've caught there was a sea slug.

Irish i admit i am a horrible typist, but its no typo... i lose a lot of tackle- and i just can't stand it (probably why i am so bad with the salmons and steel heads) so i was thinking, whats cheap and sinks? ESPN was on, golf no less. so i looked it up and the average golf ball weighs 1.5 oz... so i just tie on 2. other people screw in eye bolts, but i just drill through them. i caught a really nice looking fish yesterday, a fellow down there said it was a greenling- was too small to keep. however, i only lost one hook all day- we were there for about 5 hours.

the only down side to the balls is they bounce- and i feel a lot like a strike... takes a little getting used to.

do you know of other places in the area that are more productive?

Unless there happened to be two other women fishing there and having just caught a small kelp greenling and had it in a white plastic bucket while trying to determine it's length....

How did the mussels and ghost shrimp work for you, or did you get to using them?

we tried the mussels and the shrimps, i think we were getting bites, but with the golf balls its hard to tell. i still spend a lot of time randomly jerking my line. it keeps me entertained. we didn't stay a whole lot longer after you left- it was getting pretty cold and windy.

Don't blame you there... it was getting kinda nasty... I was there yesterday and the surf was INSANE!!!!! When you snag up and the wave pressure against your line is enough to nearly double your rod... it's time to give up on the fishing... :lol:

I'll be back out there later this week when the surf's lower.

Starting to sound like we need to schedule a Boiler Bay meetup! If it falls on the right day, I should be able to make the drive out and join in the fun!
