What runs along the beaches in the winter worth catching and how do you catch them? As a side note, how far out do you have to get the bait while surf fishing to catch fish?

In January, you should use chunks of fresh shrimp for pompano.....or sand fleas, but theyre just a lil hard to come by that time of the year....:).....oh, and throw out as FARas you can.:toast

I use 9' rods but some people use up to 15'. To me , a 9' or 10' rod is optimum.

As for reels, use something like a Penn 7500 with 20 lb test line.

Winter surf fishing is hit and miss but somedays will be excellent. Catches include, pompano, whiting, bluefish, bonito, redfish, flounder, blackdrum and sharks. You'll just have to go and find out. You can use any length rod, if it's short just use 5 ft PVC rod spikes, heck I use long rod spikes even with 10 ft rods.
