I've heard of people catching steelhead while beach fishing for cutties. Very rare though...I imagine because they are on the move a lot. It would be neat to see what Steel look like in the ocean. I imagine this bright, gleaming chrome bullet dancing in my head! LOL Cheers! -Nathan in NW

It's a very rare catch in salt water... however, years ago at Epsom Point I caught one on a pearl blue Zzinger. I've heard of a few other caught around the Sunshine coast but all 15 years ago or more. Definatly not something you would target. More like you'd bump into it.
Have fun, Jason

Thats what I figured. Im jsut asking in curiosity, im not much of a saltwater fisherman. Only been out a couple times. Myself, ive never heard of a steelhead caught in salt, until now.

I caught a steelhead not far from the QA marker a couple years ago in March, fishing for springs at 70' with a flasher/anchovie combo. It was a wild fish about 12 pounds, it was safely released after an excellent fight. Sure wish I had a camera!!!!!!
