September Surf Fishout
Fishmaster: Kirk Mathew
The September Surf Fishout will be at Manresa State Beach, on Saturday, September 9th. We have a low tide of +1.1 at 0700, so will be fishing a slack tide as we start. Meet at the parking lot outside the state park to rig up. If no parking is available, then go back into the neighborhood and walk down a path that crosses the railroad tracks, or proceed on up San Andreas Road to the Oceanview Drive and follow it around to the right to parking. There are steps leading to the beach. This is a favorite parking spot for surfers.
We will have extra flies (free) and stripping baskets (loan or purchase). Any questions please check our SCFF website www.santacruzflyfishermen.org for info on surf fishing (green icon on left panel). It answers about 90 percent of the questions. Or call Kirk Mathew 724-6811 or Sam Bishop 476-6451.
Just show up and have fun. Maybe see some whales too!
