I've been fishing for most of my 28 years but just gotten into surf casting the past few months. After going out about 7 or 8 times in the past few weeks, Im getting skunked everytime. I realize that I'm very green and have ALOT to learn. And this is a process that will take a lifetime. Ive been reading this site for hours everyday, trying to learn everything I can. I've used clams, macks, bucktails, fake eels, crippled herring, rattle trap, storm wildeye shads. Maybe I'm not casting far enough and need to invest in waders? I'm just curious if anyone else is hooking up from shore in this area, so I know if I'm doing something wrong or it's everyone. Thanks for your time and help.
