Q: How do I tackle a bass surf beach us­ing lures?

Sea Angler (UK) - - SEA SCHOOL -

JONATHAN CLAY,PILL, BRIS­TOL

HG says: It de­pends on how big the surf is, of course, but I would use a lure like the dis­con­tin­ued Bass Bul­let – the Westin Konge­to­bis fishes ex­actly the same way. Whack it out and wind it in, ad­just­ing your speed to work it on the sur­face or just be­neath.

I would also try some met­als (cast­ing jigs or spin­ners) and think about bump­ing pad­dle­tails, like the Fi­i­ish Black Min­now.

Look for fea­tures – holes and gul­lies and sand­banks – at the venue. Don’t dis­count sim­ply whack­ing out your more reg­u­lar sub-sur­face min­nows.
