Surf fishing!
« on: November 08, 2005, 10:42:59 AM »
It's been quite a few years since i have done any surf casting but i've been wanting to get back into it a little.

I'm curious as to what baits are productive these days?  I use to catch a few fish throwing castmasters and poppers.

I only live a couple miles from the ocean, with a body of water like that it's a shame to not use it some! :)

I also haven't been there in quite a few years. But back when I went more often I used a 9 ft. light action rod with a small fluorescent orange Atom Popper.

Seemed to work under just about any conditions  :D

Hmmm... maybe I'll go again this fall, before it gets too cold!

Guys,

The atoms poppers always work well, but the newer Gabbs grabbers are much better topwater baits.  Also, shad bodies on lead heads and yozuri minnows are great surf baits as well.  

One of my favorite spots in RI to surf fish is at the mouth of the Narrow river inlet in Narragansett....check it out if you get the chance...

 fished black rock the other morning schoolies everywhere. I was using shad color storm lures. Really anything would have caught you something. The breachway very good at night with live eels.

good luck,
