Personal Beach SamplingPosted: April 21, 2016
A few weeks back, when the kids and I went to help the field biologists with beach sampling, we did our own little biological survey as well. When we were done with the seining, we traded the net for a different methodology, using different equipment. That’s Skyla and Weston preparing to deploy the test equipment. The tide was a bit too low–and going lower–for great success, but we managed to find a couple of small sea-run cutthroat trout and one really nice one that jumped three times before throwing the hook. When the tide ran all the way out, it left a channel in the flats that fished like a small river. That’s Skyla, below, working her retrieve like a pro. Perfect way to cap off a fantastic day.
