Hi,
I would like to take my son surf fishing tomorrow night for stripers. Where would be a good place to start (in NH)?
Thanks

Hampton/Seabrook Harbor. The beach inside the harbor on the seasbrook side is o.k but i prefer the Jetty on either the hampton side or the semi-jetty/rock wall on the seabrook side.

Just about any place you can legally park on 1A will produce at one time or another. Also so will 1B in Newcastle. Bear in mind a lot of places are tide dependant. High tide will bring the water to you but at the same time you have to deal with a lot of vegetation, low tide can mean a slippery walk on the rocks to get to the water but you bypass most of said vegetation. During the daytime I would bypass the beaches as they are few and very crowded, unless you happen to know someone who owns a beachfront house, in whick case I will gladly show you the ropes if you bring me along!

There's not a fish out there I won't target or a technique I won't try! At the very worst I died with my rod in my hands!

I know, I was just hinting that your still guaranteed fish in the rivers, and the surf is hit or miss. Do you want to fish, or do you want to catch?

10 bass landed in the vicinity of a Boar's Head yesterday and the day before. One of which decided his grampa was a tarpon; fully out of the water, tail-walkin' and gills extended. Was witnessed by 3 people. That one measured over 30' and weighed 12lbs. Not too shabby for "hit or miss"! Especially during midday.

LOL. It's ok. I dont think there are many who want to walk that territory anyway
When I hear "surf fishing", I think of the dreaded sand. And sitting in it lol. I probably do that 1 or twice a year, usually at Plum Island. I dont really consider working the rocks "surf fishing", but I suppose I should! lol
I told Paul 2 good spots for him and his son to fish, both spots with very easy access. I didnt think he would want to work the rocks at night.

That fish was a tailwalker! I've never seen a striper jump like that. That was quite the sight.

Jigman, hhmmm. Maybe some of them stripers are gettin jiggy with the salmon and now we have these hard pulling, bottom diving, tailwalking, headshaking animals swimming around!
Sounds good to me!
