Default Sand spike ?

I am making a couple of aluminum angle and pvc sand spikes. About how deep in the sand do you drive these for good support? I was going to put a piece of angle on the bottom to step on to help drive it in the sand, but this will stop the depth. I have deep sea fished,fished off piers etc. all my life just never got around to surf fishing. Gonna try it some in May, Thanks, David

I set mine where the waves are lapping, and rock them in while pressing down hard. They go in about a foot. When I place the rods in the holder, I back the drags way off--the resistance of the line moving through the water will set sharp circle hooks. When I pick up the rod to reel in, I tighten the drag half a turn.

Don't make it so difficult. PVC and a rubber mallet and you'll never have to worry about it.
