Anybody else going to be there? I am heading down Friday and coming back Tuesday. Catch a couple Togs and a blue or two and maybe even that 30" striper.

Sandcrab,

Along those lines do you ever place a inline sinker say 24" or so in front of a bucktail?

Figure in the current it couldn't hurt.

BTW I also like using Zoom Super Flukes in Alewife and Bubble gum. Work great if you keep the blues from chopping them.

The inline sinker is the way to go. Billr showed Sandcrab and I how to fish it. Throw the bucktail with the work (white, bubblegum, etc) out into the current at the beginning and let the current take your sinker. When it gets to the end of the current, reel it in.

I have yet to do it, but Billr seemed to really know IRI.

I'll be around the inlet Friday night through Monday afternoon. I already advised the wife that I will be fishing most of the night regardless of rain.
I'll be at the South end of 3Rs or at the North side of the inlet. If anyone is going to fish the surf in that vacinity, let me know and we can hook up.
I'll be the guy with the burgundy Expedition with the Yankees hat.

Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and I find it very informative thanks to you all. I was wondering how much weight you use for the inline sinker with the bucktail? Also what size bucktail are you throwing?

Yikes, that's windy. 30 knots is 34.5 miles per hour. I better buy some 8 ounce weights~! Heck, fishing in that wind is still better than sitting home watching the computer and talking about fishing.
See you out there~

SharkHunter,

I will be there either way. Will be driving a Green/Gold GMC Safari Van. Probably won't be wearing my Braves hat (need to keep it clean :)) but will be wearing a tan baseball hat with a black horseshoe and the outline of the state of WV on the front of it.

Will be fishing mostly the inlet who knows
which side depends on the campers but probably the North from tip of railing to the CG Station.

BTW, there is some sort of open house at the CG station on Saturday.

Hope to see you there,

Dave

FSH-N-HNT,

I would say 1/2 oz. bucktail with 1oz. inline but I could be wrong. I use 1/2 oz jigheads as well and they work fine especially during the slack tide.

I try to keep the total weight of the bucktail and the inline sinker to around 2 oz as that is my rods limitation. I normally use a 1-1/2 oz inline sinker and a 1/2 bucktail/worm trailer. I have seen others use 2 oz sinkers and 1/2 ounce or less bucktails. The lighter the bucktail, the higher up in the water column it will ride. Trailers colors can be white, yellow, black, pink, or any other color.

littlefry,

IRI or Indian River Inlet is the DE inlet. May even take the children down to Shantytown Pier in OC where the fishing has been very good of late. One thing for sure I will be at IRI early every morn :)

Hey Oldsalt,

9 ft seas and I am thinking of staying out of the inlet during the tide change :)

On second thought maybe I will bring the video camera :)
