He was fun to fish with. He told us up front that fishing has been slow and let us decide. We chose to still fish and we caught sting rays, Lady fish. Gaftops, and a little shark. No fish to take home but he warned us. He was a blast to hangout with

Ha. That's pretty funny. That area he fishes is interesting, definitely seems to lay flat more often than here, definitely more clear, more defined rips, seems like the first gut is fairly deep right off the shore.

Anyway, for my surf setup I use daiwa beefstick and model higher (called sealine, I think). Both are 10' budget type rods, sealine seems better quality. Again, worthwhile to research a little on surf fishing techniques, setups, targets, etc to make the most out of your yearly trip. Second, what someone said before - lookup sharkchum, one of the best surf fishermen and gave info freely (ran into him at sargent one time and gave me and a buddy great info and even made us a couple of surf rigs and just gave it to us). Wish he still posted here!

No doubt Sharkchum would have strong opinions and lots of advice...even for an area he had never fished. LOL
