Well it's that time of year again:happy3::icon_viking::icon_tongue:!!!! The laptop will be packed up for the trip eathier Wednesday or Thursday so thought since i'm bored now thought I should make this now. So... This will be just a report of what I catch and were i catch the fish. Every time i come back from fishing there should be a report up fish or no fish. I will be fishing at least 3 times a day. First the inlet till bout 8 the surf till lifegaurds come and kick me off then when maybe when life gaurds leave (if the family doesn't want me to go somewere):icon_rambo: Then at night probably from the surf but I also want to try the Rt. 50 Bridge once or twice this year at night. So thats the deal.

4 Days!!!!!!!

Maybe see some of you guys down there... Im the little 15 year old with 3 rods... 1 is bright blue you can't miss me. And at the IRI i will be fishing near a really tall guy so dont hesitate to say hi if you feel like it!!!:happy3:

WOW!!!!! Shark fishing is fun:happy10:!!!!! I didn't land any but one took me for a spin:icon_syda: took out about 50 yards of line and i turned him around and he spit the hook got the rig back tho:glasses13:. I went through 3 bunker in 2 1/2 hours. I think they were sand bar sharks not sand tigers because i had a big 10/0 hook and a big peice of bunke and there would be teeth marks in it and a big slit were the hook was pulled. :evil3: Im goin out tomarow morning and hope to catch so kingfish and maybe a blue and use it as bait tomarow night....:blob8:.... I cant wait to land one though. 915- 10 o'clock every cast there was a bite. Then on the last peice of bait i had i snapped my homeade rig on the cast:angry5: But i love to make the shark rigs:happy9: the fish love to tangle my rig though!!!:cya::evil3:. But fun and i cant wait for tomarow!!! One nice guy came and watched with his kids and they wanted to watch me land one... the kids loved though when the shark ran.... The bout 9pm another gentleman came and gave me some pointers so stop by and say high!!!:coffee2:

P.S.- Thurday morning i will fish IRI so if anyone see's me please stop and say high and give me some pointers if im doing anything wrong Thanks!! Zach

Zach, go out on the beach at night with a 12/0 circle hook and steel leader.

Take a whole Bunker and hook it through the back just behind the dorsal fin.

Toss it about 50 feet out and wait for a big toothy critter.

They come in close at night.

Take a look through last years posts, you can find lots of info and pics there.

thanks steve... well just got back from Ocean City and man does time fly down there.... average week of fishing with 10 fish missed about 10 though so should of had 20:angry8:. Sadly i didnt catch my shark but i got alot of info from you guys this year and had a great time meeting some people on the beach last night from the surf the poor guy next to us hooked into a huge striper and he got it up into the suds and this thing was 25+ lbs and 40+ inches and his leader broke and it got away. I felt bad for him. But anyway you guys have been a huge help this is a great site with great people on it i have alot more questions so you will here me for a long time still!!!:icon_rabbit:.But you guys gave me great tips before i found this site last year i caught 1 skate last year. This year i caught 10 fish. Hopefully next year ill be ready with all the tackle and everything to catch my shark... i quess i just have to dream about it for another year. Im planning a striper trip to eathier oc or the jersey coast in october :happy2: so maybe see you guys again but thanks to all the people who said hi... it made my trip alot more enjoyable. Because catching no fish at 1130 with nobody around can get pretty boring.:evil6:. Steve do you use that setup on a fish finder type rig? I would have made alot of youtube vids down there but i got a new camera and it wouldnt charge so that dissapointed me. But my youtube channel is surffishing275. There is some saltwater but there is alot of freshwater stuff.
