Hey guys, I'm heading to va beach on 9/27 and want to try some surf fishing. I'll be around 55th at. Has anyone surf fished up there that can give advise on what to use? I'll be there all week, and don't mind wakin at the ass crack of dawn. Thanks. I do have a kayak but I'm thinking it's gonna be too rough to try it out.

Do you have decent size heaver rods? Youre gonna need em with this wind, and heavy leads, anchor weights. Your best bet maybe would be to fish inside the park on 64th street on the land side, only costs a couple bucks to park there and the wind should not be too strong and you could fish lighter tackle, IDK if the fish are back there tho. If you do brave the surf, use some cut baits like spot and mullet, the drum are moving now.

I bought a cheap 9' surf rod at bass pro. I guess that'll do?And the rest I'll get local. Can you tell me if incoming or outgoing is better?

High tide to outgoing shouldn't be too bad incoming might yield a few fish. I guess it depends on bait, weather, and mood of the day. Ask around the tackle shops in town they can give you some solid advice.
