you certainly can fish them from shore, however there are a few issues:ambler said:This is something I've wanted to try for years. Is there much good water that can be fished from shore? I guess if there is, people will likely want to keep the secret; I know how to do that. Also, if these spots exist do they get busy on the weekend?
I don't know what kind of equipment to use either. I basically don't know anything about this fishery, except really big fish. Thanks everybody.
The best bait is always the freshest you can find, fresh roe, fresh guts, fresh, fresh, fresh.Teppit1 said:what's a good bait to use that time of year?
Please tell me you are not serious?????? stink bait is one of the most effective baits in the fall and late summer, there is a lot of days when your only gonna get your fish on stink bait... not only that but you also get a lot of larger fish on stink bait... keep that theory of yours going... cause that is all it is... if any body sees a floating spring just grab it , hang on just the skin or bag some of the flesh and fish it... the last year I guided I had 9 fish over 8 feet on just stink bait...Dogbreath said:The best bait is always the freshest you can find, fresh roe, fresh guts, fresh, fresh, fresh.Teppit1 said:what's a good bait to use that time of year?
I see so-called guides picking up rotting carcasses that are floating down the river and using that, those guys are dimwits who are ripping off their clients no wonder we out fish them 5 to one day after day.
No wonder they don't like locals fishing near them!
any sandbars a guy needs to watch for between the boat launch at haney marine and the stave mouth? or is it reasonably deep that section of river?
