Default Fish Finder Rig

Hello to all, new to the forum here. I went fishing the other night from 9:30 to 12:30 off the beach in Long Beach Island. Used a fish finder rig with 4 oz lead pyramid and hard clams. Conditions were perfect, harvest moon, 65 degrees (water prob around 70) and light wind. The surf was fairly calm with small breakers. I was only able to catch small sharks all night long.

This is the second time this has happened and I know the conditions have just about everything to do with it, but I can't figure out why only small sharks and nothing else!

Any ideas?

Sand sharks? I'm no expert but every time I've caught a sand shark at least 5 more followed. They travel in packs and can be a pain in the @$$. Maybe you should try a different spot, my guess would be that there is something in that area attracting the sharks attention and keeping them there.
Think like a fish....

DCOURTS! Conditions may have been perfect except for the fact that there were dogfish around. Nothing you can do about that but move to another spot. Even if there's bass around they will never get to your bait faster than a dogfish!

Went out again tonight off the beach in LBI. 2 dogfish and a snapper blue. No stripers yet.

Was using chunks of bunker.

Keep at it, you should have some pretty good action starting real soon. You could also get rid of the weight and just drift the clams and chunk in some moving water. Looks better for a presentation but it can be harder to get out there. Good luck.
