BBG,

Haven't been up there (north end) very much lately. Got a 44 on a small bucktail a few days ago. Saw lots of lazy fish up on the shallow sand. Had a really short feeding window. One went after it boatside, but didn't hook up. Shortly after, we caught the 44. Then numerous lazy follows. Then nothing. I'd recommend you be there early or late. I'm not hearing about much going on there during the day.

Tim said it.The North end has been a bit off lately, but the fish are still there. The diversity of structure South has been better during the day.Some big surprises at 2:00 in the afternoon.The pm bite is still king.Big blades have been the ticket all season. Fish the same spots you would during the day.Be careful and make sure your lights etc. are in working order before heading out.Also, prepare for success at night.Clean/organize the boat and have lighting and release tools ready.Most of all have fun and feel the rush when she eats at boatside.Extreme fishing at it's finest. Steve

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
