    Re: Surf fishing pointers or teacher

    I plug for surf perch and striper's good youtube tutorials learn from the most important thing I would suggest is learn to read the water and keep moving till you find fish.

    Sandcrabs will do the trick for stripers. Dig down several inches into the wet sand and find some nice ones with roe (EDIT: some anglers swear by softshell ones too; I don't have enough experience to know if it makes a difference). Hook one on a sliding rig or two on a hi-lo surf leader rig, cast out on an appropriately sized pyramid sinker, and you're good to go. Set the rod in the holder and watch for the bends.

    Hey. Go on youtube and look up the perch video by Jd Richey, he lays it down perfectly. Next,hit up Manresa,or Sunset,or New Brighton,and fish the foam. It isn't rocket science,and you may get surprised with a striper or halibut. Good luck!!
