Re: OBX Surf Fishing - help!
Most people cast past the fish. Many are right in the wash, especially mullet. I don't target them but bearklr is spot on. A light pompano or mullet rig with fresh sand fleas right in the wash can produce action when blues, croaker, flounder are slow.
For flounder, many lay right in the same area. I have caught quite a few dragging a squid strip parallel to the beach. I wade out and cast down the beach and slowing drag the squid strip back to me just outside of the wash.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
