onemorecast (3/25/2010)I typically watch the wave action. On a day when the water is clear, finding washouts are fairly easy. Just look for the darker spots which indicates deeper water. However, that's not always the case. Observing the wave action can help you identify good deep washouts. While watching the wave action look for an area of somewhat smooth water in between wave breaks. Normally between 50 to 100 yards wide. The smoother or flat area between the wave breaks indicates deeper water. The waves breaking on either side ofthe flat waterindicate sand bars. Set up in between the wave breakers and fish the deeper area. I have noticed better success while fishing the west side of the wash. The water leaving out of those washes pushes bait out with it and fish like to hang or swim through those areas to catch the outflow of bait. The beaches have a really good diagram posted in most parking lots that help swimmers identify rip currents. Look for that diagram and it will add you in finding washouts and what to look for. I hope this helps.

Copy and pasted for the non-clickers:

In case your like me and need to see what these guys are talking about.....check theses out.

This picture is common of what you may see at lowtide. Scouting the beach at lowtide helps you after the water rises.

The arrows show which way the water is moving. "B" are sandbars "C" are suckouts, where the water starts to return back and "D" is where the water breaks due to the rapid incline of the rising bottom.

This photo shows the break in the sandbar. Between the arrows is where the water is deeper. As described by the other folks, white water or tops of waves will indicate where the water becomes shallower.

Here is a cutout or side view. Notice the nearshore and outer sandbar. Both can have some wave action above them. Baits should be presented in the sloughs as the fish travel in them.

In this diagram, the breakers move towards the beach and over the sandbar. The water collects in the feeder area and returns through the neck where it finally returns at the head. This is a dangerous place often refered to as a rip current. Thats why you swim across it and not back to the beach. Fish wait in the head as bait is flushed back out. *Hint*

When you get to the water, take a moment to look closely as to what is going on. I hope this helps you read the beach....
