Hitting the sand next weekend (10/25). I typically take my kayak with me to run out shark bait. Wondering if it's even worth the effort this time of year. Do some toothy critters hang around this late into the year or will it be a touch too cold for them?

If the odds are stacked against me, I'd rather save the time and space in hauling it.

Thoughts?

other than a few sand tigers at night, the bigger sharks have left.

Also yakking bait out this time of year can be a challenge, esp at night when you have any remote chance of getting into sharks.

Wondering if just yakking out a slightly larger bait (maybe not a huge chunk like when specifically targetting a shark) on an 6/0 - 8/0 would increase my odds of producing a larger striper (if not a shark)? Would certainly get me further out there then casting.

I can't imagine how nice it would be to reel in a big-boy striper with a 9/0 with 80# test - lol. I could just drag it in :-D

And any yakking would be at daytime. I don't mess with the surf at night. My nuts haven't dropped far enough just yet.
