    Yeah, I’ve talked to a few out of staters trying to fish for the big blues. I told them, you won’t see any of them until the water cools off.

    Hey Zippy, what's a good list a essentials for fishing off a pier? I haven't had much luck with my limited kook setup. The Inlet here is always crowded and lots of crap to get hung up on the bottom. I've seen guys do well with a lure setup instead of live bait. I am use to just grabbing live shrimp and some squid at the bait shop. What's a decent rod / reel and lure that won't cost me an arm and a leg?

    Geeze, wish I could help with that. My fishing gear is a lot like my surfing gear. I collect it randomly discarding what doesn't work from what does until I have it all together. No plan and no organized understanding of why and what works. If it was all gone tomorrow I would have a heck of a time rebuilding it since It would mean starting from scratch. For that reason I'm not the one to ask about set ups. I'm sure someone else on hear could do a better job than me.

    Dude...you wear that classic Rolex while fishing?

    Waffle House must pay better than I imagined.

    DP, when I lived down there, pier fishing pretty much consisted of weight and hook. Maybe have a live pinfish or shrimp ready to go if a big red fish or snook showed up in the lights (nighttime). Used to fish the Redington Pier once in a while. I also did a lot of fishing from the docks at the Coast Guard station down in St. Pete since my dad was a coastie. Another place I miss is Fort De Soto! Used to go out to the point and walk out always and live one shrimp.

    Right now all I'm using is a Shakespear Ugly Stick with a Shakespeare Encore reel, leader with a single 1oz. weight and medium sized bait hook usually with shrimp. It works sometimes but not as good as I would like. I'm not a guy who goes fishing all the time, I'd rather surf but when that's not happening fishing is another way to be around the water.

    My go to rig is a 7' St Croix Triumph Surf with a Quantum Boca 40 PTSE spinning with Sufix 832 30lb braid. If I was pier fishing or boat fishing, I have a 6'6" Penn Allegiance rod with Quantum Iron PT spinning with Sufix 832 20lb braid. Pier fishing I would go with something around the 6'/6"6" heavy to medium heavy action considering you have to lift your fish up to the pier. I prefer a fish finder rig. Weight connects to plastic slider witch slides up and down the line then a leader with medium hook. Depends on where I am fishing, I might toss a float on it to get it up off the bottom. If I am live lining, I’ll toss on a fluorocarbon leader with hook without a weight.

    Nice man! I'd soak the fillets in milk overnight (helps reduce the fishy taste) and pan fry that thing in some beer, old bay and butter.

    South Jersey Fishcakes. Saute some shallots, garlic, red pepper... add skinless, boneless fillets... cook until done. Let cool.

    Add some, egg, mayo, mustard, cilantro and breadcrumbs. Form into patties, pan fry in butter, serve with lemon wedges... veggie of your choice, rice, and stewed garden tomatoes.

    Sounds good! Send some fish my way. Surf fishing is still pretty slow in Delaware and Maryland.
