It's a cool thing to do. I like going out at night and fishing next to a pier that's where most of the action happens . just be aware of ur surroundings especially at night sharks linger around. People think ol I can jus cast from the surf no wrong!!!! You gotta get in the water around waist high and cast past the waves if not the waves will just bring ur line back in and ur bait is gone. You should try it sometime @mcgraffy I think you might like it!!!
