I went to North Newport this a.m (Feb 1) and met up with A.J and George. A fast, south moving current made for difficult line control, it broke up beside the jetties which were nicely fishable. There was a fast incoming tide and the bite turned off at approx. 8:30. Caught seven Barred Surf Perch and one Shovel Nosed Guitar Fish using two different flies. The flies were the Sand Crab we tied at Wednesday’s class and a knock-off of Kevin Green’s Scrat. The fish showed no preference for the flies – catching was split equally between them.
