    Where is the Iron Ranger Station to get tickets at Otay? Is there one at the launch area at the point to Harvey's? Also, is the gate open 30 minutes before sunrise?

    Thanks!

    I talked to a ranger. He said grab a handfull of payment slips. Fill it out the morning you get in seal it with doe inside and keep it on you if you get checked. When you are done, go drop it off in the iron ranger. I asked if it was a problem getting in the water early and he told me no. I launch super early down towards the end of Harveys. Its been epic. Going Wednesday morning if its open. Let me know

    I’ll be there then. Top water was pretty epic Saturday morning in the very end of Harvey’s in super shallow water with quality mixed in. Then really good hudd bite

    Nice.. I've seen some of the old school big shad this year that I haven't seen in a while. Makes sense to hear about the hudd bite. The Popper, Fluke bit in the well for us. Then we found some nice ones on the speed crawl on some rock piles in the late am. If I'm not there I'll be at Barrett. My Son's friend got in em really good there. Had crazy numbers by 11am. Going offshore Tuesday but let's check in before the 4th.

    There is a yellow iron sign next to the trail. Parking on both sides of the road. Pretty easy access to the water.

    That pin is my favorite place to launch. Plus you can go in before the gate opens.
