Me and my brother made the trek today, caught 38 trout and a dozen crabs. Perfect surf conditions but the kicker is they didn't turn on until after 10 am. We caught a few before then but it was slow. Probably could have caught more crabs but didn't tend the trot line much. Also you have to fight thru the school trout to get your keepers

Wow, I did not know this either. I haven't fished them in at least 15 years, that was a quick run out there, we even caught Pompano at those rigs

bourge, the weather got the best of us, heck a water spout came on shore along the beach not far from us....we did manage some smaller trout until it got so bad we had to roll

John, there is no fish kill there....glare? we left because of the storms. Trust me as rough as it was out there....there wasn't anything rolling under the surf, it was coming on shore

Just got back from Elmers, I didn't see any fish kill there

Nice size and fat, have to sift thru the ones holding eggs though

I fished Elmers this past weekend, that west wind killed the bite. Caught plenty of crabs though. I like a northerly even if it's a NW you can catch. A SE wind is good too if it's not howling...same with a south

Sharks were definitely there, brother caught one after it attacked his fish basket. A lot of bait running along that shoreline

You can fish as close as a couple of hundred feet from where you park or you can walk to gorrillaville and all points in between

We were killing them this time last year, it may have been just bad fishing days the last two times I went

Went this past Saturday, wasn't good. Was tossing a variety of soft plastics to no avail, water was clean but they had some rollers at times. Still waiting for that beach to turn on

Went to Elmer's a couple of weeks ago, plenty of fat females, caught about a hamper and could have caught more. There were a couple of throwback though (eggs)

Was there this past Saturday. The Spec fishing was a little slow due to dirty water (we only caught about 20) so we ran the crab lines and it did not disappoint, like you said the crabs are nice sized and fat...we used turkey necks and wound up with about a hamper.
