Are you catching all the crabs for bait? I am having a hard time locating any.

Sharkchum's Surf Fishing Safaris'. I must have been drinking while online, because one day I get a box full of shirts, business cards, pens, and magnetic stickers for my truck. I really don't have a surf fishing guide service , but a lot of people think I should.

I buy them at seafood markets. You just have to call around until you find one that has them. They are hard to find this time of year and I usually only catch 3 or 4 a weekend in my traps.

I'm absolutely amazed at the consistency at which you can catch them.

Awesome congrats. I've never had any luck fishing the surf. I noticed you use a drop shot rig? I use the same thing except much scaled down in the flats when I wade fish.

for my knowledge, how far out do you put your bait when you surf fish? Past all of the breakers? I feel like when I surf fish my bait is just getting tossed around by the ocean and the fish can't find it.

Anyway, congrats on a fun day and great pics.

It's not really a drop shot rig, it's the leaders I build for surf fishing.
The distance you place your bait's depends on where the gut's are at the time and which gut the fish are feeding in. Most of the fish I catch are relatively close in, usually the first or second gut.
The fish that feed in the surf zone have been doing it for millions of years and are used to the rough water and currents. A rough surf is actually better for fishing, because the crashing waves uncover all the small marine life that is buried in the sand that the fish feed on.
