Hey Striper Mike:

been getting lots of 24-28 in the North and South rivers. Seems like a slow start for the big mamas.  What do you think?  I want to try plugging at the Julian Street area of the beach.  Any Hot Spots??  Thanks,  Dgfish

Dgfish.........cool name!  you are right in my opinion, it is a slow start.  I also prefer plugs in the ocean and the Julian Street area is a good bet.  Try it at sunrise regardless of the tide.  That  is an inside tip for the beach area, or in my opinion, any beach area. By the way , on the same days when those fish were in the river.........I had four keepers (released) from the ocean side.........herring chunks.  The river has some fish for every body.........the ocean has the big ones for me....good luck.....
