Thinking about heading down to OC soon for some shark fishing. Took my 21ft Striper WA out last year one time on a really flat day. Caught a lot of flounder on the reefs and wrecks among other small things. Tried sharking a little bit and we had one come in and investigate but didn't take the hook. Ended up out to the African Queen. That's probably the furthest I would go on a single screw. Of course that day I saw a pontoon boat out 12 miles :eek2:. The inlet wasn't bad at all, going or coming. I know it can get really nasty at times. How can you predict good or bad inlet? I assume out going tide with east wind would be bad but I feel there's probably a little more to it than that.
