Re: Lure fishing in the surf.
You'll likely have opportunities for striper and bluefish in May. Your cast masters will be fine, along with the bombers, or the bucktails. Just move until you find fish. I have had incredible success in the NC and Assateague surf with flounder, trout, drum, striper, and bluefish with a 1/2 - 3/4 oz lead heads and a 3-4 gulp shrimp, gulp paddle tail, or gulp swimming mullet. Just a slow bump and go retrieve has caught me a lot of fish over the years. Last time I did that in Assateague I caught 26", 25", 24", 22", 18" flounder in a few hours of walking and casting.
