Most of my large fish come in the back half of October on your local beaches . 

I’ve always found the fall was loads and loads of hungry schoolies.  Found bigger fish  in summer

I need some big fish this year. To early to sling. eels from the rocks after dark?  I always heard/thought it was a late summer fall thing. 

Never too early, never too late. Fish them year round. Dead, alive, rigged... it doesn’t matter.

There are plenty of large bass and have been since early May. Have caught a half dozen at 40” or greater all in 4-8 ft of water in May. Since the water has warmed up in June have been finding them in 12-16 ft. All reachable from shore, within (100yds)  although we have been in kayaks for all except 3 of them. Night time is the right time

Well, even if I can reach them with my more aerodynamic plugs, they won't stay in the strike zone for long. I bet the only artificials this fish wants at night are eel imitations/bucktails - good luck casting that 100 yds. I guess we have to wait until the water cools off.

Surface Water temp has dropped by 6 degrees since the middle of the week and the high tide peak is perfect. Now is the time to get on the rocks and find them. They should be in close enough to reach with an eel or metal lip
