Default Re: Beginner Tips

I will email you first thing in the morning! So, I went out tonight to a rocky beach that goes out to a nice dropoff where the local tackle shop guy recommended over my other spots mentioned earlier. I was using a 2oz sinker with a striper hook setup on a slider, with chunked mackerel. I had a big problem with losing my bait, and fast. How would one recommend a) cutting the mackerel and b) putting it on the hook. And how long do I let it soak before I reel it in and re-cast? I tried various things but obviously to no avail I am going to go back tomorrow at low tide so I can get closer to where it drops off. Please shoot me some advice, will check in the morning, and I will apply to tomorrow fishing! Thanks for all the help everyone, I really appreciate it!
