Red face Help!!

I have been surfcasting for only a year now and I have been struggling to catch fish. I go fishing pretty often and so far have nothing to show for it. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any advice. I have most of the articles on this site and have found them very useful, but anything else that may help my confidence would be greatly appreciated. I do most of my surfcasting in south county, rhode island off the jetties and beaches, and preferr plugging and eels over chunking, so with that said and help would be great. THanks a lot!

Go at night! I have not been skunked yet this year at night. Last year got skunked alot, so far this year I have more fish than I had all last season, I'm going at night as opposed to first light into the day like I used to.

Mike,
I live in South County also.
The above info (go at night) is good,,,, but, I'd like to add that for those Jetties, go at night the last 3 hrs. of the outgoing. Plus going to the end is usually better than most spots.
Lots of folks can't be bothered with fishing the full moon, and that's great advice! It leaves things much less crowded when I'm going. This past full moon at least one of these ponds had a very good worm hatch happening. I had 2 awsome nights with schoolies on the fly in the light of the moon. Was almost like daylight.
For me, once the sun goes down and things get fairly dark,,, I'll consider the next couple hours (relatively) non-productive. Not always, but generally.
And IMHO there is only one thing better than fishing at night. That would be a damp, foggy, drizzly, overcast morning in the rocks. Living in SoCo I'm sure you know where to find rocks (and I'm not talking breachways).
