August Surf Fishout
Fishmaster: Sam Bishop
Saturday August 4 at 0600 we meet at Beer Can Beach. This one is a bit trickier to find than the state beaches, so here is the address: 1094 Via Palo Alto, Aptos. Or use this link: https://www.californiabeaches.com/beach/beer-can-beach/. Look for the steps down to the beach between two houses. Sunrise is 0615 and it will be a mid-ebb tide, with the low coming at 1010. I will have loaner or purchase stripping baskets and spare flies. More info is always on our wonderful website, side panel, green link to surf fishing.
Just so you know, we recently had a couple guys from Fresno (newbies to surf fishing) come over and fish with Kirk and me. They had some luck that day, but two days later on their own, one of the guys caught two 24-inch Stripers using simple flies we provided.
This location is close, no pre-registration required and cheap (free), so come on out. But if you do not know how to cast, this is not the place to learn. Join Steve Rudzinski at 5:30 pm in the parking lot before the Wednesday meeting/BBQ and get some instruction. (I will be in Loreto Mexico on the Club's Dorado fish-out on Wednesday, but be back for the surf fish-out.)

Sign Up: Two spots are left for the first week. Send me money to hold your spot. Mail your check, made out to John Cook, to P.O. Box 2822, Aptos, CA 95001-2822.
The fishmaster will maintain a waiting list for each week. If space for you becomes available by May 1st, you will be notified by telephone.
