I am located in virginia beach, I only have a 10’ penn wrath with matching 1800 spinner and a seperate walmart 12’ rod I can swap the reel too. I have only caught one fish in the bay, I don't know what it was, I'm thinking it was a mullet or whiting?(small gold fish that bit shrimp), and I want to try my hand in the winter. Ive read rockfish/striper can be caught this time of year but I dont know were or what tackle and bait to use. But hell I will fish for anything. Any recomendations?
