In the sit on top ocean kayak. If you are going under human power, Launch from the Birch Bay State Park boat Lauch about an hour after the tide turns from full. Smooth paddling right out to Whitehorn. The tidal rip that runs off the point is about 150 yards out, runs south to cherry point on the ebb, north past Semiahmoo Spit and past Drayton Harbor on the flow. The rip has a speed of about 4-6 knots, at most, being fastest at Whitehorn. Large numbers of starry flounder avg 14-18 inches on the shore side of the rip, depth about 70 feet. Also a lot of sand dabs, pacific sole, and various sculpin type fish. once you get out of the kelp beds, the bottom is mostly sandy, with isolated patches of seagrass/seaweeds and clumps of kelp.
On the ocean side of the rip, depth about 80-100 feet. Seems to be mostly sandy bottom with isolated rock clusters. Extensive kelp beds off the southern side of Whitehorn, around the rocks and about 20 yards off the rocks.
We have had good success anchoring on the ocean edge of the rip as it ebbs south, and fishing with lead head scampis baited with horse clam (use strips of feet or siphon), 3-4 ounces of egg weight, bouncing lightly on the bottom. My other half also ties a second hook on about a 2 foot leader to the main hook, and baits that hook just with clam. The dungeness cabs and larger bottom fish hit at the scampi, the smaller fish and flatfish hit at the other hook. Works very well. When the tide turns, we anchor on the shore edge, just north of Point Whitehorn.
On this trip (11 hours on the water, almost a new moon, hazy day, no rain), we kept 3 Starry flounder, avg 18 inches, and three sculpin type fish, avg 14 inches. We released probably 3 dozen or more smaller fish of all types, three spiny dogfish (all avg. 2.5/3 ft) and over 2 dozen dungeness crab over legal size, the largest 6 were 6.5/7.5 inches across the carapace. If I could stop the dang crabs from eating the chartruese scampis, I'd be a happy happy camper!
