Great report dave - shame you didn't raise a fish but at least you got some good exercise and some surf entry/exits under your belt. I like the look of that river2sea squid - i think you'll find that billybob nailed a monster sized trevally on one of those a while back. Also love the rapala xraps - how can a fish resist a lure that looks like that!
Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.
