On the popping cork, do you use a jig head or just the hook itself?

good discussion, the most important piece of tackle I own is my tackle backpack. I love to walk and cast and not worry about changing lures. Its hands free. The pack I'm using is one from FishNPack (goggle). You can buy a their pack or purchase a kit to retrofit a pack you may already have.

Nice info. I love surf fishing with a light spinning reel. The biggest mistake people make is going too heavy. Unless you are yaking the baits out deep, you dont need a heavy rod.

When fishing running bait in the current, I just use the cork to keep the bait in the feeding zone as long as possible. If not getting hit, then give it a pop. If no signes of bait or fish feeding, then I usually loose the cork and just cast baits. I too prefer just a circle hook under a cork, although I will use jiggs in rougher water.

Also I will use a jig under a cork when fishing for flounder in the marsh. Rig the bait to where it is just off the bottom. I usually put a pinch of shrimp or spray on attractant on the bait. I dont really pop it as mush as I drag it slowly towards me and let it fall back. You can tear up some flounder doing this.

Thanks for the advise, fairly new to this (salt water) and trying to set myself up for success. Do you prefer braid or mono for main line? I have heard so many different yay's and nay's on braid it's not funny. Used braid back about 8 yrs ago fishing in SC and promised myself I would not use it again. What is your experience? Have they improved it all that much? Currently use mono.


For about 10 years i was fishing in salt water using braided or fused line + fluorocarbon leader.Fishing in this way you catch (if you know to fish)more fish comparative with mono, special if you fish with jigs because you feel better the bites comparative with mono.
In the same times ,if you fish with spinning tackle,for the same lb. test like mono you cast longer distance(because the braid is tinnier), so you can research large area to find the fish.

I never fish again with mono

Great Post. Can you buy the mono rigs instead of making your own while your down there?

What's the best bait when fishing for Reds or bull reds? Bottom fishing!

Awesome, new to the surf fishing front, gonna be down in fifteen days and been looking for some tips to give me an edge so I can give my old man a run for his money!


Give a man a fish... and he'll tell you how the one he caught last week weighed more.

If you need any sassy shads take a look at my website.
www.backwaterbait.com

I'm sending a lot of 5 inch shads to galveston for red fish. Take a look at my braggin board for pictures.
