First Overnight on the Surf

Rate this topic

30 posts in this topic

Planning to do my first overnight fishing trip on the surf near pt. pleasant. I have my cooler ready with ice, flashlights charged and my box ready to go. Since this is my virgin trip, do you have any suggestions as to additional items that I may have overlooked? Thanks in advance, again!!!

If you hear strange noises behind you in the dark quickly turn around to see what it is. eek.gif That'll draw a strike on your plug, which you'll miss every time cwm27.gif

something warm to wear and to block wind... it's always colder than what the weatherman says...

 

good luck and have fun!!!

 

That's what I call the 10 degree rule. Take the expected low temp. subtract ten and dress for that.

Have a good time and good luck.

 

Raingear, water, powerbars (or other light easy to carry energy bar), change of clothes in the car/truck, maybe a thermos of coffee or soup for the vehicle too. The more comfortable you are out there the longer you will tend to stay.

 

If you have a spare spool bring it, pliers or a hook out might be helpful too - especially at night and treble hooks.

Not knowing what you keep in your trunk makes it to tough to guess what you forgot.

In my trunk I have :

First Aid Kit

Flares

Water

Food

Dry clothes

more dry socks

rain gear

bug juice \\ sun screen

water proof matches

Extra batteries

Portable Waterproof VHF Radio

Prepaid cell phone throw away

Duct Tape

collapsable Kayak dolly with ATV beach wheels (I've used this for much more than my yak.

 

This is just the backup just-in-case stuff.

I have no idea what you actually want to bring with you. But yeah definitly bring some rubbers wink.gif
