Here's a good article to read about using sinking lines for SW fishing......oh, and they did mention stripping baskets, too...


Your boy Ron K says that article is shite... Thanks for sending along my info to him, afish. I know enough to already know he knows his stuff about the surf. I will def pick his brain this upcoming year.

Thanks, again!


Ron (the weenie) is a great SW guy. He knows his stuff and SW fishes more than anyone I know.

No Fred, your nickname is not RonK.

But I will say, without doubt, you are the utmost authority on FFing for snakeheads.

He looks a lot like RonKowski, though, but about 18 inches shorter.

Steering this thread back to the OP's original material....

I would add to what's already been said: don't overlook springtime fishing and back bays. If one's salt experience has mainly been on the beach in the late autumn (as the OP suggests) one will conclude much of what the OP learned and commented upon: you need bigger rods, stripping baskets, boot-foot waders, etc.

However, if you're going to focus on much of the Mid-Atlantic area, including NJ down to NC, back bay areas are a different fishing experience. In these areas, I prefer the spring time months and use smaller tackle, typically 7-9WT rods and floating lines. Striped bass, blues, weaks, and redfish are excellent targets for a wading - or better yet kayaking - saltwater FFer.

There's more to saltwater FFing than "out front" during the fall run.

Thanks for all the feedback, guys. I have been tied up with family stuff for a week or so. I have tackled the weakfish and small bass in the back bays, too, and I agree with Dave that there is fertile ground in the back for fishing, especially during times when trout are doing their thing or during the dog days of summer (and those May choppers!) I guess one way to look at this deep freeze is that I am saving the gas money that I am not spending this winter on road trips to fish Central PA and the LV for some new sw/ww gear for the upcoming year.
