How to Find Fish
« on: July 27, 2017, 01:49:45 pm »
So, you've decided to give surf fishing a try.  You pack up your gear in your 4x4 and drive to the beach.  As you drive along the beach, the water looks pretty much the same to you.  How do you find the most likely spot to produce fish?

First of all, schools of gamefish are usually in motion, roaming up and down the surf.  Don't expect to find a static "honey hole" that will always produce for you.  Look at the surf and you will see two or three sets of breakers moving shoreward, with green water separating them. The places where the waves are breaking are sandbars, and the green water represents channels, or "guts" between them. Fish use the guts as highways to cruise up and down the beach.  The guts and bars get progressively deeper as you move offshore, and fishing deeper water increases your chances of catching larger fish.  Usually you can wade the first gut, stand on the first sandbar, and cast into the second gut.
