    SF Bay/Northbay Report 3/14

    SF Ocean Beach 2/22/24

    Grab the tackle and Dash out the door straight out to the beach. got there an hour before the high tide, the surf was moderate. Notice a patch of sandcrabs right in front of me and the trough was right there. I told myself to be more consistent working this area. well enough said.
