    Just an FYI...
    Crews were finishing beach work and piping connections today. I stopped and asked one of the guys when dredging will start. Supposed to start pumping on Monday and expected to be working for at least 1 week. Looks like they will dredge the main channel starting east of the railroad tracks. Guy I talked to said they were seeing monster fish ( he said "like 5' long") right under the railroad tressle when they started laying pipe earlier this week.

    When they were dredging at Cardiff the deepening of the channel ETC made for really good fishing , the lagoon exit cleared a lot of area and created new channels near the reef . I even caught Shortfin Corvina in that area in the early hours of the day . Spotfin would work the edges of the deepened channel and it was really cool to watch at close range their feeding habits . Hope it works in a positive way for the fishing at the location. Good luck . WR

    Certain areas you can, but a good part of the lagoon is protected

    While the crews are dredging the activity will probably affect surf fishing in that area. I suspect the water will look like chocolate milk from the lagoon inlet down to Grandview.
