Default Re: Buying my first "real" surf reel & rod

one other thing guys use, even from shore, is a snag hook if *adult* bunker are in tight and castable (usually on a west wind, lowish surf).

actually for "peanuts" a good tool is 2 trebles tied on droppers above a weight, say 2 or 3 ozs. you cast into or over the pod, reel fast and snag one or 2 on the trebles then let them sit wiggling just as with the adults on the regular snag hook.

you could get your biggest striper of the season using these methods...
