I arrived at Ala Spit this afternoon about midway through the incoming tide and had a fare amount of action: bringing two cutthroat to hand, having two or three others on, and getting other strikes. I was a bit surprised given the time of day and the bright sun. It's also getting close to time for these fish to head to the rivers for the winter. It just goes to show that rules are meant to be broken. I caught fish on a white shrimp pattern as well as my favored marabou sand eel. Some fish were in the seam that forms near the south end of the eastern gravel bar, but others were a little more offshore in the cushion that builds up at places where the current rises over that bar. Most fish were small, but one I landed was about 17".
