Surfcasting: How many lures do you bring?

Rate this topic

98 posts in this topic

In surfcasting, you don’t have the luxury of a boat where you can bring all of your lures with you. You have to pick and choose based on the conditions.

 

How many lures do you typically bring on a single trip that are quickly accessible?  Also, how many in the vehicle?

I'm down to a half dozen. And 75% of the time, I never replace the tin with which I started. But I don't bring the same set of lures to more than one beach.

I drive the beach so there’s a bunch of lures in the truck and a handful in the small bag I carry

The public beach access in CT is so limited that unfortunately they would never allow that. Forces you to bring more than you need unless you don't mind a 5 minute walk to your car.

Used to carry about 20, now it's 6-8 for surf. In the boat way too many...

About 7-9 plugs plus a half dozen combined of tins/bucktails.

 

Fish multiple different spots with different structures so just carry to cover all bases without always changing out stuff to give me flexibility to location
