Title: Devereux Sands
Post by Lew_Riffle on Mar 2nd, 2009, 7:33am

I took an early morning walk out at Elwood to check out an early low tide and found small surf with clean water. The slough has finally busted open some time the last few weeks and the beach has several hundred tons of new sand on it.  From Elwood down to Coal Oil point there  where distinctively 3 big holes texturing the the surf line where a new sand bar has been breached by rips. Fished them all  getting about 3 to 4 perch per hole. Fished better earlier with a lower tide. Nothing very big or pregnant yet. Did not see any beans but the holes where deep and no doubt  they are there. It was very  delightful water to fish. We live in a beautiful place.  
We have not had any huge surf events this winter and hopefully will not see anything like the anomaly event of year ago when it got so huge and tore things up so bad. Anyhow northwest wind events like we had last week build good structure for surf fishing. This winter looks like it will transition into spring with more of these weak frontal passages with lots of northwest wind as the precedent weather pattern. The momma perch will be ready to drop babies pretty soon. This spring could hold some very good fishing in  the surf.       LEW
