You asked: How do you surf fish for beginners?

What is the best way to surf fish?

Fishing just off the bottom is a common approach for surf fishing. Using a cast and retrieve technique places immense pressure on live baits, causing the bait to last only a short while. Unless fish are actively chasing live bait for the bite, use a heavy weight and let the fish come to you.

Can you surf fish with a 7 foot rod?

The best rod to surf fish with is the one you have. While you might not be able to throw as heavy of a lure or throw your bait as far, a 6 to 7 foot rod can catch fish from the surf.

How do you keep bait on a hook for surf fishing?

To keep the bait from sliding off, push the point and barb into the end of the worm. This technique works for all worms in all fishing. Another method is to use several worm pieces and thread the hook through the center of the body so that the worm pieces dangle from the side of the hook.
