I just spent a week in Melbourne Beach at the Outdoor Resorts. It was my first surf fishing experience..I loved it (even though I only caught a small whiting) I fishing on the resort beach and also traveled down to the Sabastian pier and did some combat fishing. My parents are still down there and I plan on going down again next year. I do need to invest in a surf rod though. Are the combos at Wal-Mart any good?
