Fishing in the dark

Met up with Flying Hawaiian down at the soccer fields, right after he'd landed this huge chum. Didn't land anything myself, although we both chased schools of chum up & down the river with no luck.
All in all a good time fishin', and I'll give it a go here again soon. I think the water being so clear and low just made the fish spooked, and put 'em off the bite for the most part.

It sounded like this morning was pretty hot up at clarks creek.

Thanks Flying Hawaiian....good time.

  1. Nice fish FH looks like you guys had fun. Supposed to cloud up and rain a bit overnight, high tide in the bay 6:30ish so think I'll give it a try tomorrow a.m.

  7. Hello all, Well the nets are showing a good sign that the chum are in force, I went down on Sunday around 2pm. They are netting quite a bit plus with the small rain coming, the hydrograph shows the river reaching the same level as last weekend.

    Good luck and tight lines.

  9. My other friend went to soccer fields tonight but I could not make it and he landed one. Fish are on the bite. I recon some areas near 11th street bridge and up to soccer fields some good areas.

    I saw a seal swimming so watch out.

  10. Hit the soccer fields about 7:30 am today(friday), stayed until 11, early saw a couple of bright jumpers middle of the river and several pretty ugly looking bucks moving up along the shallows. No luck, didn't see anyone else catch anything (by 9 there were 10-12 trying their luck). Wish I could have stayed the whole day and fished towards dusk. Maybe Sunday.
