    Gonna hit the surf on my up to NC for my buddy's Super Bowl party.

    Anybody else going out? Recommendations on spots?

    I have a beginner question:

    I checked out this website:
    http://www.spitcast.com/3/index.html
    for surf forecast, and it looks to be dead flat this weekend. My question is how does this effect surf fishing? If the surf is low, and the water probably more clear, do the fish get spooky and does this make for a harder bite?

    As always, any experience and advice is appreciated.

    Dont know about the site, but on friday its suppose to be really warm. I though I heard there was going to be santa ana conditions this week. You want to find a protected beach. Ya clear water and flat condition, the fish will be a little spooky, but with the warm weather it will encourage them to feed. I personally like the calmer conditions, makes it easier to fish then a rageing winter swell.

    Small surf is obviously ideal for surf fishing, but I find that no surf makes the bite tougher. I think that fish in moving water, fresh or salt, tend to be more aggressive because they have a smaller window of opportunity to grab something.

    There are Santa Ana winds in the afternoon, but it will die off hourly slowly..

    Give it a try! I went out today with 2 buddies and we caught 14 barred surf perch total. The hot breeze on the beach is very nice.

    We slayed them today! Just fish the incoming tide, thats what we did.
