    thanks for posting on these surfcasting threads!! I might be there for the sunday tides. What is the best tide do you think at Kasilof? Do you fish the actual mouth channels or the mud flats? What kind of rig do you drive? I'd be in a white Nissan.

    I have a Chevy equinox. I fish near the left green buoy. I like 80+ tides. Saturday is looking good.

    I have never been to the Kasilof beach; can you park your rig on the beach and do you frequently get skunked?

    Surf casting is hit or miss

    Hey I heard somewhere that fishing for butts is best in spring down there? Like they are chasing the hooligan or something. Or can you catch them off the beach in Kasilof all summer? Saw a couple of guys haul in several of those sharks at the mouth of Kenai River last year. They called them mud sharks though. Same thing? Looked like the ones in your picture. That was in August I think.

    You guys catch halibut and sharks off the beach all year? Winter too? Cool. Thought they be in deeper water. Do the halibut and sharks ever go up those rivers at all or do they hang low off the mouths only?

    Btw, those guys at the Kenai kept their sharks and gave me a piece. I cut it up, spiced them up and fried them. It was very good! Not like salmon or halibut in taste or texture but still very tasty.

    You guys are gonna probably have some surf for sure! The forecast looks bad. That and there is a pretty big tide this weekend. I was gonna kayak but I'm staying home. Good luck!
