Late September Centenial Park help?
My son is coming for a visit the last full week of September
We have a lot of stuff planned but we hope to do a little bit of just sitting on the bank soaking some eggs type fishing
I've heard Centenial Park in Soldotna is a decent place for that but in all these years I've never been there.
Do you target a certain amount of time after high tide there?
Or is it so far upstream that it doesn't matter?
I'm guessing there's too much current for a bobber there. Do you just put on enough weight to let them sit on the bottom?
Any advice would be appreciated I just want to try to have the right terminal tackle when (if) we get there.
Not effected by tide... but be there before sunrise. Use enough weight (pyramid is best) to sit on bottom and soak eggs. Many will put a bell on the rod and sit in the truck to stay warm. Expect a strong possibility of freezing in the mornings. Silvers ought to be really really good at the end of September.
By the way, later in the morning, try casting a #4 or 5 vibrex.
would 2 or 3 OZ be enough?
I don't know. Throw one out and if it doesn't hold, put on the heavier. My guess is that you will need the 3 oz unless you are fishing in the lagoon.
Guess I'll look for some 4's too then!!!
Thanks for the info!!
Sometimes it's nice to just sit and watch your rod......
Might bring the Cat Heater and a blanket though !!!
