Saltwater Fishing From The Shore

Try live soft shell sand crabs or chunks of fish native to the area, such as squid or mackerel, as bait. Many times the fish that move into the surf to feed are looking for dead fish anyway, and the pieces on your hook are as good as any! If you need frozen bait, shrimp, anchovies, mussels, or clams will work well.

Consider using a sliding sinker to rig your line. The fish can not feel a sliding sinker and that will quell the inclination to drop bait when they feel that telltale tug on the line.

Contrary to popular belief, surf fishing is not just for kids and adults enjoy it just as much as anyone. We promise, you will enjoy it if you give it a good try (and remember practice is the only way to improve your skill level and do well.) If you don’t have a boat, or for those times when it is just not feasible to get out on your boat and devote a whole day to fishing on the water, surf fishing is a fantastic alternative. Just use a little knowledge, and come prepared to enjoy the wind and the wonderful surf fishing available to you as a shore angler!
