Spooks and poppers work well in the surf! Bucktails also work well and pretty cheap! ;)

3 oz crippled herring with split ring removed and white buck tail on single siwash attached to the wire loop pointed up so it doesn't dig in the sand so often... casts like a rocket and retrieve/swimm it slow but not dragging bottom.. drag bottom for hali's..

I tried going today, but the wind was too strong, do any of you add a weight to the lure?

Never! fish are a lot closer than you think. ;)

GFS, do you bend the crippled herring a little to give it more action? I know guys do it when verticle jigging?

some i do and some i don't.. first thing i do after installing the buck tail is test them from the wharf and see how they swim on the retrieve.. with my penn 704 gear ratio and the line recovery it has i count one thousand one for ever rotation of the handle.. at that speed the 3 oz with the buck tail looks alive.. the buck tail gives it a extra little kick..

Thanks for sharing a great idea, ghostfish_slayer!

I experimented in freshwater last night with an unbent 2oz Crippled Herring. It looked like the best action was with a 5/0 single hook bucktail. Larger bucktails seemed to dull (not kill) the wobbling motion, while smaller bucktails seemed to destabilize the action. I don't currently have a 3oz Crippled Herring to experiment with, but from past experiences with different metals I guess a 6/0 bucktail would work well with that size.

Good fishing! FB

Hey Ricky

Thats the best part. people look at you like your nuts, then hopefully a bit later you walk past them with a big old fish. Now they are looking and asking questions too. Oh my G-d what kind of fish is that. Their dog is checking you out and the kids love it.

Also, be careful of your back cast, be aware what is behind you, you don't want to set the hook into someone's kid, but dog's are the worst, they see that plug hanging off your rod be before a cast, they think it's fetch time.


During the summer time the beaches are crowded during the day, be aware of that, when the beaches get to crowded I'll just go someplace else to fish.

yeah, I hooked a teenager on the forehead with a Kastmaster, in the Philippines. What a fiasco, had to take him to a local hospital. All the things that went through my mind. A country were nobody follows laws, what was going to happen to me next, jail time, political unrest, I didnt know. Luckily the hook was removed I paid the hospital and apologized to the kid, gave him my pocket knife as a souvenier and nothing else became of it. whew!
