    If i were surf fishing just on open beach with a gotcha plug, how would i fish them. They are so heavy so i would not know what to do, and can you fish with them in the waves (sure is heavy enough).

    If you have any suggestions for lures to use on open beach/surf and how to use them please reply. And if you know of an online discount store for good surf fishing equipment, thet would be really helpful

    THANX

    cast them out and work them like your "walking the dog" only a bit faster. Blues love them things. Good luck.

    www.nagsheadpier.com has a camera if you watch early in the am most of the guys on the south side of the pier (the right) will be working gotcha plugs from the pier.

    Its on all night. But the cameras has to reset everyonce and a while. Unless things have changed. When I get the itch to go to the coast I can check the cameras and see how everyone is doing. When the spots and croaker are running good its a mad house there and when the blues and striper start a blitz watch out. Nags head is a good pier to fish from IMO and its not to far from home. Glad you liked it. I fouond it doing a pier cam search on google

    Did you get the zoom? and light filter are did they disable that with the weather getting colder. I guess I need to go and check it out.

    I go to nagshead pier to fish about 6-8 times a year. I also go surf fishing in oregon inlet south of nagshead. Fishing gotcha plugs is easy, sort of like a jerk bait for bass they just sink, but you will want to jerk and get a good side to side movement on them. You can fish them shallow or very deep. This time of the year is one of the best for runs of bluefish, and early morning speckled trout. Plan on taking a trip there in about 3 weeks. I will be throwing gotchas, double trout grub rigs, and i will probably sit some fresh cut on the bottom just to pass the time. I love nagshead fishing pier and check the cam out almost everyday.
