Long Beach Breakwall

I have a question. Is it safe to go out to the break wall and fish from a 14 foot aluminum boat?The boat has 25 mph motor if it helps. If it is relatively safe. What is the best time to fish and come back because of the tides? Don't want to be risking my life for any fish thanks.

Sounds kinda risky. Even if it makes it out there you might end up chumming the waters. lol

If you stay on the inside, you'll be safe.

If you go around to the outside, you need to check the weather (NOAA:"http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/forecast.htm") on the water. Pay attention to wind and swell size.

If you go outside, you really, really need to pay attention to the rocks...especially if the wind is blowing tward the rocks. It sounds very basic but you really, really need to pay attention if you're working the rock wall, or anywhere near the rock wall. It's very easy to get caught by a rogue wave, and the wind and end up on the rocks...someone does it every year.

Basically, if you're asking if it's safe, then you shouldn't be on the outside...stay inside and make sure you know where your PFD's are. On the inside, kyaks are safe...I know a few crazy people that have paddled their float tubes out to the 2nd closest island (the closest island is in casting distance).

Anytime you're on the water, you really need to have a marine radio on you, even if it's a handheld.

with small plastic swimbaits in the 3 inch with 10 # test
see www.buoyweather.com and check the swell

Inside is cool, you can use islands to lesson the chop. Cargo ships ought to make a nice wave

Maybe outside if the tide is dead, probably what the Sav-On guy meant by coming in by 12

If wanting to risk it, then troll instead of anchor down. I'd target the openings and stay inside

There's plenty of places to fish inside...just check out your charts and pay attention to what's going on around you...the tankers move so slow that you have to check to see if they have an anchor out or look at their bow to look for a slight bow wave...
