Light tackle in the surf for striped bass using a Dobyns DX783 SF rod.  Videos were shot with a GoPro HD Hero Helmet Camera.  An “AWESOME” day of fishing…

Well it depends on so many things,,,I only use lures when I’m surf fishing,,not bait,,,”but” you can use bait to if you want,,The best thing to do is find out what type of fish are in the area that you’ll be fishing then you should go to your local tackle shop and see how they do it in your area,,,Nor-Cal and So-Cal have a lot of different kinds fish on the surf and some the same,,I will say that So-Cal has some great fishing so I hope you do good,,,Just have fun cuz that’s what it’s all about!

hey man nice video. I am from southern california and relatively new to fishing. My buddies found this spot down here that allows camping, surfing, and surf fishing so it’s perfect, but I have no idea what surf fishing is. Do you need a special pole? What kind of bait? A special type of hook? Anything of your knowledge is gladly appreciated! Thanks you in advance man

i know tried yesterday but the waves were to big at sharp park,im gonna try linda mar tommorow or thursday

SharkManHD says:

No the fish are still there “but” it’s much harder for the fish to see the lures in rough waters and your lures might not swim correctly and also it could be to dangerous for you to fish big waves.

65elco1 says:

hey sharkman do the size of the waves matter for them to bite.

SharkManHD says:

“Yea” I sometimes fish Baker & China beach when the fish are there!

dddanyoynabbb says:
