In Topic: surf fishing tips needed

06 September 2011 - 02:32 PM

What's up Matt. hit me up this fall. I'll be surf fishing a lot in South Jersey. I generally fish the beaches more than the inlets from Avalon to Cape May Point. Only fresh bait. Tica makes good rods for the price for sure and I swear by Penn reels...with 30-40 pound braid. I fish with circle hooks and drags set pretty tight...you're basically hooked up when they take, but you need to be ready and close to the rods. the first two hours before and after low tide have been by far the best for beaches north of the cape may jetty. I'm still in fairmount. In my experience the fishing isn't good until the beginning of the 3rd week of April anyway...for big bass and is good until the first week of December.
