My comment was pointed towards black chrome like those post spawn chrome chinooks.
Now thats a hoot.....
Bad thing about surf fishing is that you wait for the fish to come to you, not like river fishing were you have to find the fish.
Different game, if the surf is empty you are shot. The river is another story. Odds are there are fish present 99% of the time, its the chess game of getting them to hit that draws me.
Quantity is for guides, quality is for fishermen.
