Will be vacationing early Aug. around 55th St. It has been along time since I have been there for an extended amount of time. Any suggestions on good locations and type of fish to go after and bait to use would be appreciated.

Welcome to the boards.I agree with HaysWalt, Thats where I started my 35yr surf fishing career. Its shallow but it still produces, esp on the right tide nights, early am and eves. Soak clams, bunker and even squid. Blues in the days should be good. Good luck, JOe

Whale beach is a great area and stop in to see Karen at Whale Creek B&T. I was just there Tues. and Wed. caught rays and king fish out front and stripers and 40 to 50 inch dog fish in the bay from shore.

Ah Hayswalt, I do believe thats where I did catch my first kingfish. It was when my father and I were just starting. Neither of us new what kind of fish it was and were later told it was a kingfish. Do kingfish favor shallow beachs? Is that why that area is known to hold them? JOe

Joe- not sure what holds them except there seems to be an underwater sod bank just South of the jetty and there are always a lot of "sand fleas" in the wash. Whatever it is, they are sure in abundance this year and, some nice ones to boot!

kosmo, if you like to night fish you can throw plugs off the sod banks for stripers. my friend and i got a short each on 5'' black/purple bombers last night in back of strathmere. around corson's inlet is also good. you will need to hit the banks at high tide and it usually gets busy when the tide first starts to move. good luck!!
