September Surf Fishout
By Sam Bishop

Elaine Cook, Bill Kerr, Emmett White and I hit Manresa Beach on September 5th, in spite of the dire warnings about the Great White Sharks just waiting to gobble us up. But interestingly enough, a surfer out there came back in rather quickly, because he saw one cruising by and decided a different beach would be smarter. We had hook-ups of perch, but most of then gave a few quick shakes and threw the barbless hooks, leaving our hooks to scour the sand for mole crabs. Plenty of them! This was Bill Kerr's second time to ever hit the beach with a fly rod and he landed a Barred Perch. First time he went out with us was in June. He got one then too.
