    What's your beach gear?

    Hey Oregon beach hunters: What kind of gear are you using to recover wet sand and shallow water targets? I am figuring on either a Tesoro Sand Shark or a White's Dual Field, one of the good scoops, an inflatable PFD and waders. But I'm also wondering if a full or farmer John-style wetsuit wouldn't be as practical/comfortable. I've never seen anyone working the water on any of the southern Oregon beaches, so I'm going but what works for the guys in New England, who also deal with water temps in the low 50s.

    Cats got your tongues, or are my fellow Oregonians just quiet sorts?

    Hey, thanks for posting the photos GH. Have you put in a lot of beach time with the big scoops? How are they working for you? Love to see a side view.
    By the way, I posted a welcome to your new member post. Hopefully some more of the Oregon gang will respond. Lots of folks up your way.
