Not new to surf fishing, just the area.
All tides, hours, winds. Pretty slim pickings, if any.
I was a pretty steady surf caster up in Staten Island, monster blues and 40-50 lb stripers off the beach and coves, blitzes were the norm and if it is any consolation I went through what happens when Army Engineers do shore restoration. Fishing took quite a bad hit, for about 2 years then Sandy came along reshaped everything.
Nevertheless, todays newspaper:
Afraid this will be the new normal for a couple of seasons around these parts.
