    actually I would say you want to be there at the mouth around there right now, any day should see good pushes of fish at the mouth.

    Ss it a 3 fish limit out there? I'm thinking of trying it next week with my wife and kids at the mouth with eggs/bobbers and spinners.

    thanks

    Fished there Wednesday am with a friend. Caught 3 limits (his, mine and proxy) in about 1-1/2 hrs. We hit it just right. Talked to the guy at the landing/store who said it has been hit and miss. But we managed to be there when a batch came thru. Limit is 3 silvers per/person. Eggs & bobbers or vibrax are both good bets. My advice is go and take a chance. By the time you hear about it, its too late! You need to be making history and not reading about it.

    so i went this morning, got to the mouth at 6:10 and headed for the cleaning tables by 7:30. when i got there there were only 4 boats, kinda nice compared to king season. one guide boat and 3 private, by the time i left a few more showed up including two guide boats that were up river and must not have been doing to well. pretty much everyone but myself and one other guy were using eggs and bobbers, which from what i saw eggs werent doing to hot. I was the first one to limit by a longshot. i saw two other fish caught. but i guess it was my lucky day(or maybe my skills). i just think that bobber fishing isnt a very proactive way to catch fish. caught my first two on a number 3 vibrax and they where kinda small, switched it up to a number 4 and wammy got the bigger one. they arent to big but i was in a hurry to get back. was thinking bout going again tomorrow but its kinda spendy rolling all the way out there by yourself.

    c6 you can make it there with a prop, I do it all the time. But once you get there don't try and get up river because you will run out of water before you get very far.

    Alright cool. As long as I got enough water to get to the mouth.

    you do, and if it makes you feel any better there is always people going down there to follow and for the most part the channel is the same for jets and props, the only part I would watch out for is the hard right to the mouth, cut it too close and you will hit the sand bar but if you are going fast enough you will slide right over it with out hurtung the motor.

    Good advice. I usually go pretty slow when I dont know where Im going so hopefully there will be someone to follow when I decide to go.

    The channel is not exactly the same for jets and props. you can run the main channel with either but most jet boaters don't usually stick to the main. Like myself I try to stick to around 12" 24" of water to conserve fuel and ride on plane better so my advice would be to follow a prop! if you plan on following a boat most people don't mind a tag along try and find a comparable sized and powered boat to follow that way you can keep a content on step and don't have to worry about slowing down and wasting a prop!!

    Following a similar boat is easier said than done. Not many people have a boat as old ugly and slow as mine.
