Some advice for newbie
Hi everyone. I had a couple questions. I'm not new to fishing but new to surf fishing for striper.I've tried multiple times with no success. I was trying with sp minnow and different buck tails. Not even a bite. I fished off inside of jetty other day with minnow and hooked a halibut second cast but bent my hook and lost it so I upgraded rings and hooks. My questions are, is a very far cast necessary? When's best time to fish minnow? Ive fished early morning and night on incoming tides with no luck. Others have been catching them here off surf and birds are diving sometimes. Also which beachs good near half moon bay if any one from around here??
Glad to be a part of forum.
