Fishbites. Extremely durable, castable, and much easier to find than live shrimp or sandfleas recently. Ive used the shrimp and sand flea varieties. All my pomps have been on the shrimp. Whiting on the sand flea. And the dirty, good for nothing, worthless, pain in my .. catfish, have been eating both.
I've used fishbites exclusively in the surf with great success the last two times I've been down to OB in early September...usually on a carolina rig. This year I'm going to try them tipped on a homemade jig I've tied up to hopefully imitate a sand flea...if they work as well this way, I'll report and also post some pics of the newest dynamite bait...LOL.:thumbup:
Was looking at the regs for Johnson Beach and Opal Beach and saw something about it being ok to fish unless the lifeguards are on duty.
is that a thing right now, and if I get there and they are on duty, how far up/down beach do I need to go?
Will be buying a condo in Florida soon. I have narrowed down to:
A. Perdidio/Gulf Shores/Orange Beach
C. Mexico Beach

Only fish about once/year in the surf, but had a situation that brought up an etiquette question..happy to stand corrected if I was in the wrong in any way as frankly, I don't surf fish much...just go by rules of common courtesy.
Last Friday, I had two surf rods in the water and was fishing...
