Anyone Else do Any Surf Fishing?

12 posts in this topic

I do! Love to go deep sea fishing when I'm able. It's in my blood (grandfather was a commercial lobster fisherman and taught my father everything about it). My father bought a 34-foot Webber Cove downeast lobster boat last fall, and every Sunday I go down to his shop and help him work on it, readying it for next season. Can't wait!

Sounds like a lot of fun, I sometimes go out on my friends boat, I have been out as far as 40 miles, can't see any land in any direction, now that's Heaven ... Friends, fish and beer ...

I've never been deep sea fish, but it's something I've always wanted to do. I went surf fishing last year....it was fun, even if we didn't catch anything. I want to fish more when the weather gets good.

Yes.

Last Fall there were sizable schools of bunker holding very close to shore on the leeward side of the jetties.

Alternately being fed-upon by schools of 18 lb. blues and occasionally (like one-in ten) schools of stripers.

One fine day they held in the same spot for hours and all I needed to do was snag a bunker with a 4 oz. Crippled Herring lure then re-hook the bunker just behind the dorsal fin around the spine. This made the ill-fated bunker uncomfortable no doubt but resulted in a near instant hook-up with a bluefish, or later that afternoon, a 22 lb. striper.

Wunderbar.

I just don't do oceans.

:lol:

there are many of us here who DON'T want to do "ocean."

That aside, I don't like hanging out in the sharks' living room.

Does throwing a stick of dynamite in count as fishing?

Going for your next Darwin Award?

If so, yes it does.

I used to live much closer to the MD and DE ocean beaches. I love the beach, especially Assateague just south of Ocean City, MD. While I don't fish, it looks fun except for hooking some innocent creature accidentally and having to try to avoid killing it while fishing for something edible. It always pains me to see a surf fisherman pull in something like a skate or a ray, injured by his hook, and then try to remove the hook to avoid killing the creature, an attempt met with varying degrees of success.

So that's what they call THAT...

...says the Delaware beach living person who obviously thinks of fishing as a foreign concept. At least I now know what that's called the, maybe, once a year I'm on the sand at the right time and see people doing it. Fun memory from years back was a family dog walk on the beach, with a few guys set up surf fishing, and one reeled in a baby shark. THAT was a surprise, both to him and everyone in view.
