West Point

Report for 12/4/08

What is it about West Point at the moment? It just does not seem to be producing for me. I did a run yesterday and came home empty handed. Admittedly it was a family run so we were late getting to the ramp, but not that late as to miss a run of fish. First drop of my metal slice over one of my marks resulted in an instant hookup of a quality fish. But I pulled the hooks just out of view. And that was the last we saw of anything decent. We tried live bait, metal sliced and even trolling around the area. There seemed to be a few boats in the area too, none of which were doing too much either. So unless there was a run of fish before we arrived, it was pretty dead!

Ramp was pretty busy, and again the park filled up. It is so unfair for us family fisherman who cannot get to the ramp at 4am. We had to park on the grass and hope not to get a ticket. Facilities really do need to be improved.
