Hi Fellow Fishing Friends,

Looking at this thread really makes me want to pickup and hit the beach some 3 hours from Alexandria. I hope to do this soon. I notice from the pics that nobody seems to be wearing a surf belt or surf tackle bag, etc. etc.

Is there a standard set of equipment recomendations for what you find useful in your trips. I don't see myself as scaling jetty rocks at midnight like Zeno Hromin (yeah I have been doing alot of reading up). But what do you find as necessary when you surf fish? What items are considered "too much extraneous stuff" for a newbie like myself. I've got the rod, reel, and rigs.

It all depends if you you will be walking to your spot or driving on the sand.

If you will be walking your stuff over the dune, a beach cart would be a great idea. Esox (member) has a cart and he stays out there for 2-3 days. He can give ya some info on what to bring.

If you have 4X4 and obtain a permit to drive on the sand, you can haul much more.

In addition to the required safety gear, I would suggest these items:

First aid kit

Flashlights

Bug spray

Long sleeve t-shirts and pants

Rain gear

Long sleeve lightweight, quick dry shirt, to keep the sun off you and bugs.

Sunscreen

Sun umbrella

Chairs

Food

PLENTY of potable water

Cell phone with the number to the ranger station.

There are plenty of other items other folks bring, adjust to your specific needs/wants.

No 4x4 :

Fish-n-mate or beach cart

Lisence

Sinkers

leader material

hooks

sand spikes

rod and real

Fish Bite Blood worms

head lamp

back pack

water.. i like to freeze em so I can have dual use.

snacks..like granola bars or crackers and cheese

small cooler with block ice ( i freeze water in old milk or juice cartons )

terminal tackle .. like swivels and snap swivels

sun tan lotion

pliers

I like to KEEP THINGS SIMPLE. All small stuff in a back pack and the cooler, sand spikes and rods are in the beach cart.

I'm also a fan of having surf tackle being dual use.... my back was bought at a military surplus store and it folds into a stool.

Hope this helps

Coop brings bananas, and he catches fish! LOL!

I'll bring 'em, I'm not worried about spiders. :D

Fruit is a perfect thing to bring.
