  1. I'm going to do some fishing from shore on the pacific coast of costa rica for a few weeks and was wondering if I could get some suggestions on what tackle would be best since I'm a complete newbee to fishing from shore. I've read a lot of the existing threads and am currently thinking about the following set up: - Okuma Nomad Travel Surf Rod NTS-S-1004MH Other options are the Okuma Nomad Travel Surf Rod NTS-S-904M or the St. Croix Triumph Surf Travel Rod TSRS90M4 or St. Croix Triumph Surf Travel Rod TSRS100M4. Which of these is best suited? Is the 1004MH overpowered for the job? Or are the others underpowered? - Penn Spinfisher VI 5500 Does this reel balance well with the above mentioned rods? Too smal or big? Is it suitable for long casts from shore? - Power Pro Spectra Fiber Braided Fishing Line 30lbs for mainline Does this choice of main line balance well with the rod and reel? - Seaguar Blue Label Fluorocarbon Leader 40lbs for short leader - Spro Power Swivel 130lbs to attach leader to mainline - Tactical Anger's Power Clips 125lbs to attach lure to leader Is this set up well balanced? Am I missing anything? Which lures are recommended? Also how would I go about setting up a live bait rig and what tackle would I need for it? Any suggestions very welcome. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey all, This question go out to all who have experience or intel on fishing the south beaches of Florida. Within the next few weeks I will be traveling to the beaches of southern Florida. I am looking to surf cast off the beach for just about whatever bites! I have every piece of fishing tackle a striped bass fisherman could want, however I am extremely ignorant on what to fish down south to target the sport fish of Florida. I plan on bringing a selection of lures to cover the water column but I was curious as to what you all would recommend to bring with me. Thanks
  3. I'll be in Naples next Tue 2/29 - 3/6 and wading the beaches and passes with my fly rod. Any reports from the beaches or passes in the Naples area? Have the Snook started to show up on the beaches yet? Also, if any SOL'rs want to fish together while I'm down there let me know!
  4. Hi All, I'm new to the sight. There is a tremendous amount of information on here! Anyway, I am taking a trip to Nosara, Costa Rica in the middle of May. I am hoping to do surf fishing/kayak fishing around Playa Pelada and around the mouth of the Rio Nosara. I found a few old post on with some information in this general area but I was hoping to possible get some more recent and more detailed info about fishing in this area. Any information folks can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Muskie_1970
  5. It's summer in florida and that means catch and release snook from the beaches. I'm on the atlantic side. I like to get out at the crack of dawn, but was thinking of going out an hour or so before first light. anyone have experience fishing for snook from the beach in the dark? Topwaters I guess, but I also got a mirrorlure catch jr. in glow. Hope these work. Any actual experience would be greatly appreciated​
  6. Caught this beauty fishing rockpiles My personal best by far.....but now I want to have some fun catching juveniles. I know a few spots, but they are hit and miss....Anyone know of a reliable spot for little guys? I really don't care how small, I have a 5wt flyrod and an ultra light spinning rig. I just want to have some fun with numbers of little guys.
  7. Hey guys, I reside in South Jersey so I am not too familiar with species of fish down south. I have a small task to build a list of Yo-Zuri lures ONLY that are used to fish for Snook.... I was wondering if those of you who target Snook happen to use any Yo-Zuri lures to do so. And if so, which ones? Thank you!
  8. In my last post I introduced myself, but for those of you who missed it.... My name is Joey and I live on the central east coast of Florida. During this time of year the mullet run is underway so we usually have some awesome fishing. I went out this morning before work and held my camera in one hand and my rod in the other. I ended up getting some nice action shots of Snook and Redfish blowing up on all the bait and even caught a few fish too. *
