Gamsahamnida SahJah,  The information in that article can be used anywhere so You might want to give it a try.  As you are just about surrounded by water and the currents and waves know no boundaries this works everywhere.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Happy Catching

Paul

I am glad you found it helpful as I see so many people fishing spots that I know will be unproductive and they wonder why they are not catching.  Well if you are fishing right on top of a bar that is only a few feet or inches deep not much will happen there.

Look for the rips and cuts and your percentage rate will defiantly go up.  But even with a beach the size of IBSP there are just so many spots available.  Plus after any good storm the beach will change.  Just by knowing what to look for you can be more productive.

Happy Catching

Its better to sit in a boat and think about God, than to sit in a church and think about fishing.

That's great Dennis.  If you have any further questions just PM me and I will be glad to help you and your family out.

It takes some learning but once you know how the surf works and where the structure is out there the fun will begin.

Happy Catching

Not 100% sure that I understand what I just read, but maybe when I get to IBSP and see first hand it will click. Either way thank you for this post.

It definitely requires a little "hands on".   thumbs up  Read Paul's article, visit the beach a few times, reread the article and it will start to make some sense.  It takes some time to really get a feel for reading the water.  Some days are easier then others based on wind speed/direction, the swell, etc.

  Yea also depends on the person some people catch on quick... I have a 2 buddies that started surf fishing last year.. We always went in a group of 3.. The one guy caught on what i was telling him to look for and what not with in 3 trips the other guy to this day still has no idea what he is looking for.. Alot of trial and error comes into play...

Just look for areas where the waves are not break in the bar & that is your opening in the bar.. Or if the waves are smaller.  In areas like LBI and IBSP it drops off quick try to fish close too shore...many a striper or flounder are hanging just on this dropoff waiting for bait washed back in by the surf.  Cast parallel to th beach to increase your lures time in that zone.
