Default sea worms

i am planning to be at plum island most of tomorrow night surf fishing "one of those people that has no friend with a boat" and was planning on using eels or clams but after few calls to bait shops i have been told sea worms are working very well atm and was wondering how to set these up for surf fishing. norm setup is a hi low running 5/0-6/0 circle hooks with a 4oz weight. never used worms befor so looking for some pointers. thanks in advance

Sea worms are one of the few 'live' baits you can buy and are readily available. Always a solid choice. I would up the weight to 6oz, but you might be just fine. If the current is enough to keep the presentation moving around you may be safe from bottom feeding trash like crabs and whatever. That's what I always count on, but some guys use an inline cigar shaped float to keep it off the bottom a bit. Look for moving water, and pay attention to your rod. Don't walk off because bait fishing is boring. Just when you do, you'll get hit hard and miss it.

I think your hook is way too big for sea worms. I've been fishing worms my whole life and have never used anything bigger than 1/0 baitholder hook. When fish are finicky in the summer I will sometimes downsize to a #1 or as small as #2. Just thread the worm straight on the hook and let the worm do it's thing. The fish grab the worm by the head and are hooked instantly.

Go to a takle shop and ask for a worm rig with a cork float and fish it with a fishfinder.
Keep the hook tight to the cork.
If you can cast 40 to 80feet, tell us how you made out. Nice soft cast.
