Default Beach Fishing

i have read alot of your post and learned quite a bit, thankyou. my question for anyone is.. 90% of my fishing is off sandy beaches with no visiable structure (rocks etc.) i like to fish the incomming tide 1 1/2 hours before high tide. I chunk macks, with fish finders have some good luck 42" 40" i have tried sea worms (selects) seem to catch a lot of schoolies with them. i fish mostly in the morning to afternoon depending on tides( i work nights / kids etc.) I have gone to my beaches at low tide and looked for anything different on the bottom etc. is there anything else i should be doing ?
thanks for your input

Default Re: Beach Fishing

Actually there is a bit to it.
But on a barren beach (or a new beach) the first thing I look for is the wave action. They'll roll gently(?) up onto the beach in a smooth uniform fashion from one side to anouther...... to a point. Somewhere that smooth flowing action gets interupted. Often by a wave coming in from the opposite direction. Where they meet you'll notice a lot more water going out, faster. This is a break in the current, often caused by a sand bar / point / rock / or something that disrupts the flow. That's structure. Nice place to start.
there is a section on here that I believe is titled "reading the beach". Good info there. Worth looking at.
Good luck.
