Things Too Remember When Wading The Surf

We all love to wade, expecially the SURF, but it can be meaner than the shallows and deserves Respect and a game plan. Here are a few suggestions I have first hand knowledge of that you need two do everytime..

* Check the Radar before you go

* Leave the smart key or alarm remote in the truck

* If it is a little Rough keep your Mouth closed

* Leave the expensive sunglasses in the truck

* Make sure you have pliers,hemo's or whatever you use to cut the line
or remove a fish with

* LOOK OUT FOR BIRDS

* If you use a donut basket for your fish and it has the plastic boxes for
lure storage, do not use it if it is Rough as it will flip over and All your
stuff will be GONE!!

* If you use a stringer make sure it is a LONG one..

* I do not suggest driving on the washed up seaweed as it can have
hidden surprises lying underneath. This goes for walking on it as well
can be hardheads or a 2x4 with nails or whatever. Walk very carefully!!

* If a mullet or cabbagehead bumps you while out there it is ok to scream
like a little girl...lol

* Bring some fresh water with you to wash the salt out of your ears..

* Don't forget your wading boots or old tennis shoes or whatever you
wear. When I first started wading I had a old pair of moto-cross boots
that worked great..

* Wear Long pants, jelly fish in the crotch ain't good

* Park your truck ABOVE THE HIGH TIDE LINE

* Grow eyes in the back of your head and did I mention look out for
BIRDS

* Bob with the waves

* Never turn your back to the waves, the next on is right behind it

* WEAR A PDF

* Leave you wallet in the truck

* Don't put your truck key in the pocket with a hole in it...

* Use a boat key floatie for your truck key

* LOOK OUT FOR BIRDS

I am sure there are more but these are a few that will help make it a

more pleasant experience. Stay safe and have fun!!

Hide your keys, don't make it easy for thieves to steal your stuff.

Sunscreen and lip balm. sun reflects off water.

And hook your floating basket,bait bucket,net ..to some thing other than
your belt loop if there's any waves ..not fun chasing that stuff back to the beach.

A ruff surf sure can be ruff on all kinds of fishing gear. I lost two plastic's boxes with Mirror lures and Paul Brown lures. One surf R&R that went out before I could get it, one of glasses $450.00, one pair of sun glasses $100.00 That not counting all of the stuff I've broken and lost BTB fishing. But, it's worth it. Gotta fish.

Bluefish surf

Never swim out further than 1/2 of what you think you can.
Keep your mouth closed while looking out for birds.
Don't poor dead bait on beach (birds thing)
If it looks to ruff to fish-it probably is
If shark does grab your stringer, it's time to putt left overs in ice chest and then go back to fishing
Keep a 4oz weight in your pocket to tie on and throw across potlickers lines when they try to crowd you out
have knife on you to cut potlickers lines once reeled in
