    It is where two currents hit each other, or push over under water structure causing rougher water. It can be good, bad, or ugly!

    Salmon and feed will often be in the rips. Can be good fishing, but it can also be weedy.

    As a general rule of thumb, salmon will almost always be on the rough side. Not as pleasant for the boat ride sometimes, but I'm more into catching fish than comfort.

    Not really. They are usually in a narrow ocean entrance, between islands, on top of rocks near a major cape, etc. Tide is either flowing in or out.. Makes no difference. It's gonna flow hard in both directions.

    Thanks 270ti. I can see the attraction for the halibut very clearly now.

    Depending on the current these can be a tough place to fish - and some can be downright unsafe during some tides. Depends on where you are and what the tides are like - a 24 foot exchange can create some impressive water.
