It goes without saying that fishing is dangerous as a result of the fast water, slick rocks and other hazards that occur in random, unexpected places. You need to exercise caution, particularly in the spring when the water is high or during rapid changes in tide before you fish anywhere. You should always wear a life vest when fishing. Also, a wading staff will help you keep your balance as you walk on the shoreline or wade.

The regulations governing legal access to fishing locations may change at any time, and it is your responsibility to understand the law.

love to use those floats in the marsh. jerk your rod tip every couple of minutes to make the float pop in the water. the sound helps attract the fish.

Aliex Fishing TV says:

Awesome, I can use this for some snapper fishing before they get into the rocks

Michael Cox says:

Floats are necessary when fishing the marsh areas. I thought this was common knowledge for local fisherman. Please post complete videos of the catch, nothing is more frustrating than watching a fish fight and never getting to see the catch.

D Carter says:

Good stuff Steve, been using floats for yrs. myself.

Wade Baune says:

Sometimes i fish bait only on a free hook. Three or four feet from the bait, going back to the pole I apply fly floatant. Then I watch the line for movement.
For you it might keep your extra line from your pole from sinking down into the oysters?

D Carter says:

I’m down at South Brunswick area, Sunset, Little River.

Chitownmike says:
