fishing from shore
Posted by nickster on May 19 2005
Regarding Mike's post - I was staying with a friend on the bluffs about 2 miles before you get into Anchor Point.  Each afternoon, for 3 days straight, several boats came in close to shore trolling.  There were boats off that area all day, but afternoon seemed to bring them in close.  You could reach them with a good cast.  I was tempted to either hike down the bank or drive down in Whiskey Gulch, but the guy at the store in Anchor Point insisted "no one ever catches anything from shore."  If I'm down there again, I'll give it a shot, the boats weren't in there each day for no reason.  I have found for casting far, a 30-50 pound PowerPro (or other similar type line) will send a couple ounce jig or weight quite a distance on a heavy spinning rod.  Would love to hear a report from anyone giving this area a try from shore.
