ive went there to check it out and watch how people fish, but how far did you throw your gear out in the water? ive seen people throw from 10 ft - 30 ft out in front of them, and what is your rod reel and line setup? ive seen people use salmon drift poles, and ive seen surf rods and suggestions?

i use an 8ft 12\25 pound rated level wind spooled with thirty five pound tuff line on a abu garcia 6500 and for my leaders i use twenty pound maxima ultra green if you use prawns with the head there is a trick i use you need to wrap the head shell either with a prawn rubber band or a piece of the self adhering bait wrap they use for quick fish wraps i think its called silver thread and distance id say a true 30ft good luck
