    If i have $100 to spend on fishing lures for the surf, what would be the best way to spend that if I'd like to catch my first halibut?

    Depends on how steep the beaches you fish are. Fishing some steep stuff like Marine St, a sinking or an LC pointer would be my call.. shallower, floater or the flash minnow

    When fishing over reef/rock bottom, a floating lure will help not getting snagged and unfortunately losing it ($). But also doable with a sinking lure once you master it.
