surf fishing mistakes

Beach fishing can be for leisure or for tactically targeting some big fish!!

Be sure to get out to the beach and get a lay of the land before you choose where to set up and start fishing.

Keep in mind you can catch fish all up and down the beach and not just in the deeper water!!!

I’ll sell my rods, I’ll sell my reels… all that matters is long, free hair 🙂 Keep it up. My goal is 15 fish, on average, a day… hair past my collar, and all.

Great discussion. I can’t wait to see the seminar. What price point do you see as the sweet spot for surf rods and reels? I know the TFO and Fuego recommendation on the inshore side. I see everything from low cost rods to the $400-500+ Lamiglas Century and St Croix rods. Plus obviously reels from a low cost Fierce to a Van Stall.

I enjoyed the podcast. I winter in Florida on the east coast, and don’t think I have ever seen the ocean flat. Once maybe. This season has been horrible. Sand fleas have disappeared so just throwing salted clams and fish bites, or shrimp. Since mid January no keeper whiting, pompano, only Atlantic sharp nose sharks, catfish, and blues. Do you think it is climate related,(I.e. temperature), or herbicides and fertilizer killing off the sand fleas? Thanks

No. It’s winter, the dead time of year for beach fishing.

Additionally. The northern gulf coast gets north winds frequently. The coast is east to west and vice versa. Given that, it knocks down the waves.

It’s totally wild looking, like a giant lake sometimes.

The pompano fishing here is phenomenal, by the way. It’s the only place on the North American continent that you can catch pompano year round.

I’m excited for this. I started fishing august of 2021 in the Palm Bay Area when we moved here. Knowing very little about salt water fishing, I had way more luck on the surf. I would head out with my 7’ pole and cast out my yo-zuri 3d fingerling or a larger rápala black and silver 5” suspended hard plastic lures. From blue fish to jack to mackerel, I’d be pulling in more fish than the live bait people around me. Even pulled in a 28” snook down in fort pierce. Can’t wait for spring and summer beach fishing. I’ll be waiting to read up on this mastery course.
