we were there this weekend...it was a slam fest right at the mouth at the jetty,for about 3 hours every morn. be on the water by 6:00-6:30 and fish the morning.In coming tide was best.
used spreader with 2 ft. dropper and mooching rig with a extra bead chain added for seaweed control,it wasnt' too bad but there was some "salad" at the tide changes.med(blue or green heering plug cut worked the best.keep in touch with the bottom.good luck and let us know how you do.
Unfortunatly I can't tow my boat and travel trailer at the same time, so I was at the mercy of the chowder heads that were with me who had their boats.
(couldn't get them up before 8:00 AM ) So we missed all of the action. In my opinion, don't even waste your time fishing after the morning bite..... But I was avenged by picking up 36 crabs from Tillamook Bay on Saturday afternoon.
HEY, IM BACK....WE FISHED TODAY. WE STARTED SLOW.
WE WERE FISHING AT DAYLIGHT, CUTPLUGS, SPINNERS, WITH NOTHING ! NOT A FISH ! STILL SEEING FISH CAUGHT. WE WERE JUST BELOW THE BRIDGE AND I PUT ON A K16 WITH A RAP....AND BANG ! ROD DOWN AND A CHROME 26LB HEN. THATS THE STORY. LOTS OF FUN IN THE RAIN.
