Surf Fishermen, Waders, Boots, and plug bag?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Any good recommendations for one starting in surf fishing?

 

I need a pair of waders, boots, and a plug/surf bag.

 

I'm 5'11'' and 220 lbs. Size 10 shoe.

 

Waders not too sure how much it costs.. The plug bag budget maybe around 10-40$.

hard to go wrong with ll bean for waders. unconditional lifetime guarantee. you can start on the entry side of breathable waders, used to be around a hundred bucks, and then when they start leaking take them back. you'll get replacement or what you paid. you can step up from there. they sell boots too.

plug bags, for me, i can never own enough of.

That guarantee sounds great.

 

Ah, any that could hold maybe 5-10 plugs with maybe a small compartment for like sinkers or something?

check the buy sell trade for some good action. aquaskinz, bronco, canyon or precision in decent condition will last a while and won't set you back too much, maybe a $20 spot more than you mention, but it will be well spent. you don't want to be knee deep in breakers and get waveslapped and have your plug bag cough up $100 bucks of plugs cause you save $10 bucks and got a bag that has a smidge of velcro holding it together.

LL beans waders for the same reason rocco said, you can keep returning them. The Emerger II's are inexpensive and don't leak like the originals (or at least not as much) they cost around $140. Boots I use the Cabela's Ultralight II's they're not the same piece's of crap as the Cabela Ultralight I's they've stepped them up and made a lot of improvements, especially if you have big feet and they're inexpensive around $70.00. You can get an alright plug bag like the ones rocco mentioned, but trust me in the long run you'd be better off with something a little more quality, I can't begin to t ell you how many times I've had hooks get stuck in my bag, plugs get lost in the bottom of my bronco back because of the caps on the square tubes popping off. they do work and are a lot cheaper you just have to do some mods to the bag.

I 2nd the Bean waders & check out the precision pak bags! They make a few modles & for the price you can't go wrong. Google Precision Pak surf bags

Bean waders + LL Bean Gray Ghost Wading boots, Shimano bag. There are alot of bags out there, but I like this setup. I have 4 bags including the below but with 8 tubes and a Aquaskinz, Like this the most (but with more tubes)

You may want to go with the boot foot waders. No worrys about getting sand,stones in the wading boots & they are cheaper. The Shamino bags are nice but above your budget.

I have several bags Surfcaster,Ebb Point Commander ETC but again your talking $3-$400,00 a bag! But Am a little Crazy! biggrin.gif

Is that first precision pak on this post any good?

post #11 of 13
yes, it is a good size too. the few drawbacks for it that i remember though are the mesh on the side and the bottom of the tubes. any hook that comes within 12 inches of the mesh seems to get caught in it some how confused.gif

if i recall correctly, the tubes have a hole in the bottom and occasionally your longer plug's bottom hook will hit the bullseye and you pretty much have to pull the whole insert out to undo it. it usually happens at 1am when you are way out on a sand bar and thats the plug you need.

i don't think it has a lot of options for metal either, so you are only gonna carry a small amount in it or hang that in the tubes as well. does have a pliers securing thingy on the side. could maybe use a bit more velcro.

Normally I won't be carrying allll of those plugs, just one on my main line, and the other 6 in the bag. Recommend more lures?
