    On the fence about hitting area 7 for the opener. I would be launching from Cornet Bay and with my range I essentially have two options: hit salmon/hein banks, or go in to Rosario and fish Lopez flats or about as far North as the Thatcher Pass area. I'm very much an are 7 noob so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Alternatively, if anyone is interested in an extra person on board, I'd be happy to split gas, bring beer and or washdown boats and gear afterwords.

    Just to clarify, I'm not asking for coordinates or anything, mostly just if anonyone thinks it'll be worthwhile.

    Rosario is protected. The spots aren't secret. Pick a flotilla and drop your gear. I'll be out. Still debating where. Give me the BD salute and I'll tell you what I know.

    Area 7 is terrible this time of year. I would not waste your time or energy.

    Stay home. No fish, no money, no beer, no women, and horrible weather.
