Well, I'm not trying to be cocky guys but extremely grateful. I have been into fish almost every other trip (atleast 4 nights a week) for the past month surf fishin. Everything I have been doing I learned here. The only reason I haven't been posting is that in between fishing I have been working OT, so basically its work, nap, fish, nap, work, etc.

I appreciate everything I have learned from you guys here so far, and am lookin forward to learning more.

Anyone goin out tomorrow night?

Zim I was workin one day in Sewaren and had an inspiration to go fishing on your side after work that day. I was so lost for hours, but eventually I found a jetty and got a fish. Couldn't tell you where I was, but it was shady. Thought of you that day.

Gonna hit somethin up tomorrow night, not sure where or when yet.

luv2,
I'd forget the topwater, sadly, as many fish have been falling to pieces of metal, avas, crip herrings, tins, and teasers. Topwater bite has been almost non-existent this Fall, with the exception of when I walked into heavily feeding fish one night. Metal has been getting it done in the daylight.

by the way im a lil confused should i be fishing the Sandy hook Bay (keansburg/ union beach) or still be at the beach... one problem i have always had is not knowing where to fish during certain times of the year... for example in the april/ may time should i be in the bay or already at the ocean side i know june etc ocean is always good... then in the fall (september etc) should i fish the first few fall months in the ocean then hit the bay up towards the end of the season??

btw like i said im heading out saturday and curious to know if i should go to sea bright or union beach

Hmmmm.....where to fish. That is always the $64million question. I'm going to say out front, only because I have been catching out front, but I like Union Beach too.
You said you'd be fishing bait as well as throwing plugs, it's hard to do both well, every time I try I wind up drifting so far away from the deadsticked rod that there was no chance I would ever get there if I needed to. I prefer to walk the beaches and throw plugs, hitting all the spots along the way, any rips or funny water, jetties, whatever. If I find fish I'll stick around a bit, as soon as they move I do too.
The bucktails you showed will certainly catch bass, but the metal I was talking about were Ava 017 diamond jigs, about $4 at a tackle shop. No tube tail, and I use a teaser ahead of it this time of year, we're basically targeting fish on the smaller side.

Sudsy posted some great ways to tie up a teaser rig, this is something you can do while waiting for the rain to go away. Lots of tackle shops will have teasers available as well, for a few bucks.

Sudsy said:

There are a lot of ways to do it

The simplest way, and the best way to get started, is to tie a small swivel (I like Spro 90#) to one end of a 5' piece of leader material with a palomar knot leaving a tag end of about 6".
I use anywhere between 20# and 50# leader depending on the size of the fish and whether or not there are bluefish around.

Using palomar knots, tie the snap of your choice, I use modified duolocks (do a search) to the plug end of the leader and another (here I prefer Breakaway clips) to the teaser end of the tag line.

You want the length between the teaser and the plug to be at least a little longer then the fish you're attempting to catch - if the fish goes for the teaser and the plug bumps him in the tail he's outa there.

Other ways include inline dropper loops, second lines tied to the swivel eye, 3 way swivels (which I don't recommend), and probably others that I'm not aware of.

I use the inline dropper method with a loop to loop connection for the teasers - but this means all my teasers have to be pretied with short double looped lines, a lot more work at home but less weight on the teaser then a snap.

Anthony,
Sorry to hear about the whole laid off thing, but it does free up a lot of time for fishing, I went thru it a couple of years ago.....I'm back at work, and the guy who made the decision to let me go has just been cut loose. What comes around, ya know....

Cappo,
Sounds like you got a good thing going there, enjoy it while you can, I get on a roll every once in a while and think I got this S^%T figured out, then I don't catch a fish for 10 days.
Surf fishing can be very humbling.

The back is a longshot right now
Stick to the front and keep moving until you find bait. That's been the key this fall - find the dinner, find the diners.

As for the teaser rigs, I've gotten away from the tag end style, too many tangles with the braided mail line.
I strictly use the dropper loop method now tied far enough from the swivel to keep the teaser line from wrapping in the braid just above the knot

I marked it in my GPS(map), which is in my car at home at the moment. I will find out more specifics and let you know for sure. All I remember is that I wasn't comfortable not knowing where I was. And I'm pretty good with bad areas.

And yea zim, its gonna be cold. Can't wait.
