Sandy Beaches vs. Rocky Beaches
There are two theoretical situations in front of you:
1) A sandy beach with a gentle slope, and little or no structure (like a jetty) around you, with very little or no deep water accessible to the surfcaster.
2) A rocky beach, with white water all over the place, and deep water that is available to the surf-bound angler.
A) Which one is better to fish?
B) What do you do in either situation -- bait, plug, rigged eel, etc.
This subject came to me when I started thinking about the viability of plugs in Jersey -- i.e. on gently sloping, sandy beaches -- so bonus points for any insights on methods for types of beaches and structure.
