Hopefully the blues and spanish will be around on Gotchas. I prefer red and white or red and silver w/ bucktail. Be sure to use some 25lb or higher flurocarbon leader. Good luck! I will be their on the May 13th and 14th give us a report.

I dont worry about having the fluro, I do ok with regular Mono leaders and save the $$ especially if you dont go alot. 20-25lb for spanish and 40-50lb for choppers. I like ande mono and the price is good.

I like it too Phish, I just dont spend for it. I'm cheap and unless Im tourney/trophy fishing I dont feel it's a big disadvantage. On those rare occasions you get some really clear water I can see a difference though for certain.

Weather is going to change and temps drop thurs/fri as will water temps , so it might hurt the Spanish bite but the blues and bottom feeders should still be pretty good.

Don't think fluoro's a big deal on blues.....they will pretty much ignore any obstacle to their percieved meal. Spanish is a different story though.....

It just wont be the "best" conditions. Winds are going to be swapping alot the next few days and more rain Fri and cool. NW winds predicted for Saturday are bad news waves will be breaking high and water will be dirty. BUT its always possible the weatherman is wrong and it happens alot on the coast!! LOL!!
