Late start today but did manage to get some surf casting (without the surf) practice in this evening at Brockdale.
Went with the Penn Squall 15 Reel and Daiwa Sealine Surf Casting Rod and Sabiki Rigged Crappie Jigs. Started using the Crappie Jigs and Slab setup we used the other day while kayak fishing, but had to remove the Slab and replace it with a lead weight to get longer casts.
Still a great time catching and releasing White Bass. Also, caught a couple of Yellow Bass, a Bass and a Catfish that decided went for the Crappie Jigs!
Overall low boating traffic – only had to deal with one boat, one jet ski, and two kayaks that passed over the schools of fish lingering off the point. No worries…, fish stayed in the area!
PS: Several casts went well past the second distance ring on the reel, meaning 160+ yard casts with a 3oz weight and easily beyond the boater’s and jet skier’s wakes.
