September Surf Fishout
By Fishmaster Sam Bishop

Saturday, September 9th our SCFF surf fishing gang Angela Johnson, Jeff Gose, Dave Marks and Sam Bishop met at Manresa Beach to encounter a heavy red algae bloom (red tide). It was so thick the visibility was less than 6 inches and resembled a muddy river. The fish may have been there, but they could not see the flies, nor could they detect the vibrations due to the heavy surf.
After an hour or so we had a good training and information session on the gear being used and casting as it relates to the surf. Feedback was that it turned into a good, productive session even if we didn't catch fish.
