The best time to go surf fishing has to be answered in a number of different ways. To address this topic we must consider what is meant by, “the best time”. Are we referring to the time of year, the time of day, the tidal movements, the phases of the moon or the weather situation? There’s a lot of room for interpretation. I will address them all in this article.
What is the Best Time of Year?
Since I am not considering any particular location, as a general rule of thumb I would have to say spring and fall. Now that doesn’t mean if you are fishing in the winter or summer that the surf fishing will be poor. It most likely just won’t be outstanding. That being said, it doesn’t mean the fishing will be outstanding in the spring and fall. What it does mean is that given the same set of circumstances, the fishing will probably be better in the spring and fall. Surf fishing depending on your location can be good year round. If you know what you’re doing it isn’t difficult to catch fish in the surf year round.
What is the Best Time of Day?
This question is easier to answer. In the early morning just before dawn until 9 or 10 AM and in the evening an hour or two before dusk. This follows the nocturnal feeding habits of the fish. During the summer when a lot of the beaches are occupied by sunbathers, dusk might be your best bet after they have left the beach. In some areas the rule is no fishing in swimming areas from the time lifeguards go on duty until the time they go off.
What is the Best Tide Time?
It’s no secret that the tides affect surf fishing. Moving water at the surf line is good for fishing. High tide is best because it’s easier to cast out and reach the deeper water. The window of opportunity is two hours before high tide and two hours after. Slack tide which is right between high tide and low tide is not productive for surf fishing. Low tide in most areas is usually only good for scouting the beach for ideal fishing spots.
What are the Best Moon Phases?
The moon not only plays a part in the tidal movements, it also affects the fishing. Let me explain. The moon produces the most extreme tide changes, referred to as spring tides, during the new moon and the full moon. The water moves faster during the change in tides from high to low tide and the total change in depth is the greatest. This is the best time to fish the surf. Also, common belief is that during a full moon the fish feed most of the night.
What are the Best Weather Conditions?
Weather conditions are a little more difficult to address because of all the different kinds of weather factors. An onshore breeze if it isn’t too strong is a plus. Cold fronts are negative factors. High wind and surf is also bad. High winds make it difficult to fish and the water clarity is very poor. Low pressure is better than high pressure during a spring tide. When the weather conditions have been poor for the last 24 hours the fishing won’t improve until the fish have had a chance to acclimate. Sometimes it may take a day or two depending on how severe the weather has been.
Now after considering all the best times for surf fishing, it’s easy to understand how these situations can work together when they occur at the same time. When planning to go surf fishing try to take advantage of the time when several of these conditions overlap each other.
If you’re having trouble with your golf game, look into getting a Callaway forged copper wedge. How will it help your game? Let’s say you are like me and have trouble navigating the various hazards most golf courses have these days. Hazards are only a problem if you are not using the proper club to get past them. That is where this wedge comes in. Now you can use your old wedge that is likely heavy and interferes with your swing, or you can do what I did and get this type of wedge. The benefits are amazing.
The best thing about a copper wedge is that it is much lighter than your typical wedge. Continue reading Up Your Game with a Copper Wedge
My All-American neighbor who is very political about keeping jobs in the US drives around in a 2016 Accord Coupe. However, he does point out that the Accord is assembled in Ohio. There is that global market thing where parts are sourced from different countries with final assembly being in America. That is better than nothing. It is nice having car plants still operating in the United States. I pass one on the way to a friend’s house who lives in Ohio. It is only about an hour from my house. The Honda brand is Japanese, but they are put together here. This is how my friend can support American manufacturing while still driving an import that he says provides him a high value for his car-buying dollars.
I like the Honda Pilot SUV. I have not ever been a car person. I have always been into vehicles that have at least some off-road capability. At the bare minimum, I like a vehicle that can get you through the winter snows here. They are not as bad as they are a bit farther north.

My daughter is one of those people who loves to collect a certain kind of thing when she becomes interested in it. Once she was interested in horses and wanted to collect different horse action figures and pictures of horses. She then became interested in yo-yos and collected different yo-yos from around the world. Lately she has been into gemstones, and the gemstone she wanted most recently was a kunzite gemstone. I had never heard of kunzite gemstones before, but I knew my daughter wouldn’t stop asking for them if I didn’t help her get one, so I started looking.
Looking at the usual stores didn’t help me find the gemstone I wanted, so I turned to some online stores. Continue reading I’ve Fallen in Love with a Gemstone
When it comes to ultra light fishing, one of the most important pieces of tackle is the fishing line. It can make the difference in catching your limit or going home empty handed. I think that Fluorocarbon Fishing Line has many great benefits but you need to consider the Pros and the Cons. Below I compare fluorocarbon line to the more popular nylon monofilament line.
The PROS of fluorocarbon fishing line:
1) Invisibility – The refractive index of fluorocarbon is close to that of water, making it just about invisible in the water. This, of course, is very important, especially in clear water. Nylon monofilament, on the other hand, is more visible underwater.
2) Abrasion resistance – Fluorocarbon line has superior abrasion resistance when compared to nylon mono. Abrasion resistance is the capacity of the line to withstand wear due to friction, rubbing, or scraping.
3) It sinks – Fluorocarbon is denser than water, making it sink (unlike nylon). This is great when fishing deep. It reduces (or eliminates) the bow/arch of the line which is caused by it floating.
4) Doesn’t absorb water – Fluorocarbon has a closed cell structure that does not absorb water. Nylon monofilament absorbs water which weakens it.
5) Low Stretch – Fluorocarbon is stiffer than nylon making it have lower stretch and higher sensitivity to fish bites. With low stretch line you can feel every little thing that is going on at the end of your line.
The CONS of fluorocarbon fishing line:
1) Manageability – Fluorocarbon line is a little harder to manage that nylon line due to the stiffness and higher memory. This makes it tougher to use on spinning reels. Since fluorocarbon manufacturers are constantly improving their lines, I don’t think this will be an issue for too long. There are already fluorocarbon lines that are softer and have lower memory.
2) Knot strength – Fluorocarbon is *supposedly* not as good with knot strength as nylon monofilaments. You have to take the extra care to tie your knots well (as with nylon). Some of the higher end fluorocarbons actually have a better knot strength than nylon monofilaments, so those lines do not belong in the “cons” section.
I personally think that the benefits of fluorocarbon fishing line outweighs the negatives. The higher quality premium fluorocarbon lines almost completely fixed the negative problems associated with it. I know that I will definitely consider fluorocarbon lines for ultralight fishing.
I was looking for a really nice wig to finish off my costume last Halloween. I had decided to go as a fairy, but I could not find the perfect wig since my own hair was too hopeless to ever be convincing in that role. I decided to just go online and find the right one, so I did a search for blue and pink wig. This is the only kind of wig that would work out for me, and I am really glad of that because it led me to a website that has since been bookmarked as one of my favorite sites to shop at.

in this article I’ll explain the tactics that I use for catching largemouth bass in spring. I know of no other activity that brings so much emotion as fishing for Smallmouth Bass in the spring!
first step is to choose the lure! This tactic is best to use soft rubber lure. Personally I prefer to use something with lots of action, but light to not make a big splash when it hits the water. My choice of baits is a 6 “Salamandra/lizard. I have used earthworms rubber to some degree of success, but nothing compares to a salamander with legs curled. They tend to choose dark colors for the murky waters. Pumpkin, watermelon, or simply black (in that order) are the more producers. A nice bright works if you find yourself in a gravel pit or another Lake that tends to keep the crystal water.
now are a few good, strong worm hooks (the larger the better IMO). Eagle claws are my personal favourite because they tend to be thicker and stronger than other brands. Make sure you use a strong! The thin wire that are beautiful to see and have a pleasant but only normally do not have the strength to hold on to a big mouth 6 + pound. Also make sure get worm hooks and not straight shank hooks. I prefer those who begin to curve outward and away after the eyelet. The type with a 1/8 “straight shot ring (view a bit like a J) is acceptable but do not seem to really twist and grab at the mouth of the fish that I prefer. I lose more fish using these type than the more curved type so just avoid them altogether. After all, there is no worse feeling to set the hook to what feels like a submarine only to throw the empty hook in the first breach of the water.
now what I want to do is take your salamander, and run the tip of the hook from right in the center of your head from the front towards the tail. Something like you would be running right in your mouth if you were live bait. Once you are in the worm about 1/8 “or to remove the hook through the bottom of the salamander. Push the hook all the way up to the eyelet is covered by rubber and then flip the hook back to the tip in the belly of the salamander. It should now have a salamander virtually weedless with hook acts as sort of a flap of sail below. This is the perfect way to hook a salamander of rubber for this tactic of bass fishing, to see why in a bit.
(THIS STEP COULD INCREASE THE NUMBER OF STRIKES THAT ARE OBTAINED AS MUCH…) (I COULD REALLY MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE AND I CAN’T ENCOURAGE ENOUGH AS TO DO IT!)
now comes the step last and probably most important of all in preparation for the entry of water. Be sure to have some Crystal bells! If you don’t know what it means and then go to your local sporting goods shop and ask for soft baits rattles. They are basically a short 1/2 ” or so glass tube sealed at both ends with a small pair of steel BBs inside. I recommend the glass about 100% over the plastic you can get. If you can get are plastic rattles then is better than nothing but glass bells make a sound that bass just can’t resist! Take a rattle and get it into the head of the salamander, just behind where the hook does. I know people who put in the body of the lure, but I think it works better on the head.
now that all is set and baited up it is time to hit the water. When you make sure that you give your bait time to sink to the bottom! He cast out and wait until their line goes slack and will be on the bottom.
now that you have the bait on the bottom of the Lake you want to do is to give just a little flip. Jerk the pole up to bounce your bait from the bottom of 4 “- 6”. Not a hard jerk as you are setting up the hook but only a little to give the salamander movement. It’s put the noise in your head instead of the body where comes into play. If it is in the body then the only BBS forward and backward rock in the glass tube that sound small gives a little. In the head, the ammunition is hit at the end of the Cup when you move a jerk and then again when the lure hits the bottom giving you much more sound through the water. This sound seems to attract bass very well in my experience!
now to wait and watch your line! Not real make their line at this time! Hold on!
see the line for about 20-30 seconds and see if it moves. If nothing hit it then you must have a slack line and how wants it. This gives the fish a little space to move with the bait. Most can be moved with the bait most will rely on it to be real and therefore more to Gabo from their mouths.
after 20 – 30 seconds give you another pull little and again, wait! Not reel the slack because you want to have a loose line. If your line is loose and has slack bass usually won’t snap your bait! (I’ve left a bass run with my bait for several meters without jerking and usually do not release it until you feel tension in the line). The slack line offers time to get ready to set the hook.
repeat pull and then see your line about 20-30 seconds until a 2 things. You will get a success or reach the shore.
when a fish, your line will now make only a small rebound and drop or will start to run out. If you have in the mouth it is going to run with it and he usually will be not fall until he feels tension on the line. What I want to do now is let it out a bit. Sometimes will even pull out extra line a little of my reel while the line of the still loose to give you more time to run with it and therefore more time to enter further into his mouth.
once it runs far enough with her let him pull out until the line is almost tight and then put the hook! Not any slack reel in leaving the fish to remove until it is tight and just prepare to pull the rod!
to adjust the hook make sure that you come up over his head as strong and fast as possible. You want to make sure that you have that hook all the way through your mouth. Then real en. Of course, there is more to be told that a Smallmouth Bass of the Earth but will save for another article.
now know one more way to catch largemouth bass in the spring! If you’ve tried everything else and just not bite you, Dale day and an opportunity for this only could be slightly improved. Of course never guarantees you fishing for a time that the rest depends on you!
this is a technique frequently used and have had very little success with it. In fact, I rarely bass fishing with any other technique in the spring because I like very much. However, it is not any kind of promise and should not be construed as such. Try this technique and see if it works for you. Does it for me… that’s all I’m saying!
I think bleached nipples became a thing for me about three months ago when I noticed something odd in the bathroom mirror. I had just got out of the shower and noticed some dark spots on my nipples. They weren’t big, but they were a bit scary. I thought maybe they were clumps of dirt or something, but they didn’t wipe off even when I applied some amount of pressure. Obviously I started thinking about things like tumors or cancer, but I didn’t really think that was the case. They didn’t hurt and they didn’t bleed. They were just there.
It was only later, after looking online, that I discovered these spots are a natural thing that happens to many of us as we get older. Continue reading How to Get Rid of Those Spots
For our senior class event this year we wanted to go big with our musical production. We went all out making our sets as professional as possible. I did the graphics for the large backdrops we used at the back of the stage. Some people call them band flags. They are just gigantic banners that can cover a stage area. New lightweight materials and printing methods make it so you can have all kinds of different stuff printed on them. The work the company that makes them does is quite amazing. You can get a really big backdrop for just a few hundred dollars. I think something like that would cost a small fortune back before modern printing methods to make them were available.
We got three that were 20×25 feet to use for three acts in the musical production we were putting on. The lightweight materials made the backdrops easy to hang and control with ropes used by the stage crew. We could roll them up and down as needed for the sets. Continue reading Getting Professional Backdrops for Our Senior Class Production
My daughter thought I was being cheap by putting pans down to catch the rain under our metal roof, but I was only doing that because I couldn’t afford to have the roof repaired. When she learned how little we had for repairs, she changed her stance and started working and saving money so that we could get the repairs. She was already taking classes in college, and I didn’t want a job to interfere with her grades, but she was confident she could do it and make enough for us to get metal roof repairs for Brisbane.
The combined efforts of my daughter and I allowed us to gain enough money to have the repairs done. We did some research on companies that perform roof repair on metal roofing and decided on one that was well received among different customers and had reasonable prices. Sometimes it’s not easy to find a company that has both. Continue reading Leaks in the Metal Roof
I’m quite happy that I found Nocatee auto insurance online and got a policy. I recently started driving again after a three year break from the car due to a back injury that made it impossible for me to get behind the wheel. I remember the good old days where you had a local insurance agent and they handled all of your insurance needs. A couple of decades ago I literally had the same agent and the same company for decades. Few people felt the need to change companies. That has all changed these days.
The problem I had was my old agent retired. Continue reading Cut Through the Confusion of Getting Auto Insurance
I was so happy when I moved to Long Beach. It put me a lot closer to my family, and I also had the job of my dreams. I knew that I wanted to find a Long Beach dentist before I started that job though, because I had a front tooth that had been chipped for several months. I just never could find the time to get to a dentist and have it fixed, and it was not really a big deal to me at the time since I worked from home.
I was about to have nearly two dozen new coworkers though, and I did not want my first impression to involve a chipped tooth. I had nearly a week to get settled into my new apartment before I had to start working, so I went online and looked at the different dentists in the area. There were so many, and I had no idea which one to pick. I called my sister and asked her who she and her family use, and she told me to go see Dr. Campbell.

As winter comes to a close and temperatures begin to rise, it is necessary to begin getting ready for spring and the arrival of summer. The warmer weather will inevitably lead to turning on the air conditioner to keep your business or store cool for employees and customers throughout the warm months. Most businesses do not have to worry about running into major problems with their air conditioning on a yearly basis, but should make sure it works as expected to avoid issues. Finding an HVAC facilities management company is not difficult, but it is important to find a reputable company with experience servicing commercial clients.

dancing in pointe shoes is a very precise technique – if you want to avoid common injuries such as ankle sprains and knee sprains. A young dancer, a beginner’s adult ballet, can take two or three years of classes and be constantly sickling or bending the ankle inward toward the center of the body, or “fishing”, or bend the ankle from the center of the body outward. In a work, or the presentation of the leg, where there is no weight on the foot, it doesn’t matter. But, in a support leg, the leg that carries the weight of the body, certainly matter – especially if you want to dance in pointe shoes.
maintain the ankle aligned, meaning sickling nor curves, or curved out, is ideal. But dancers with bend less arc want to sickle out or “fishing” the curve of the ankle, a job, or lift the leg, to show a beautiful curve of the foot showing a very flexible ankle joint. This will not result in injury of ballet, the foot or knee.
which allows the ankle for inside or out, the sickle in a support leg, however, eventually affect the condition of the Arch of the foot muscles, as well as the ligaments of the joints of the knee for support.
as a properly trained dance student can opt for “fish” or sickle towards leg work out a foot, an extension to devant or an Arabesque, to create aesthetic ballet ballet teachers, choreographers and artistic directors search. This is well in a position ballet leg that occurs.
more audience, members going to the ballet are not looking for this type of details, please believe me. Please.
in a support foot, either shoes or demi-pointe, the ankle must be aligned, i.e., in a position a straight down from the joint, to protect the tendons and ligaments that keep the structure of the upper leg, articulation of knee and leg, safely intact.
I know that our new car is packed with computerization and sensors. I have seen under the hood of new cars and have not missed how the newest models make it about impossible for a backyard mechanic to be able to fix anything. You have to be a contortionist just to replace a headlight bulb cartridge on my wife’s car. Still, I was looking for the best OBD2 scanner I could find as we had two cars out of warranty that occasionally had problems. I wanted to see what was happening before making a run to the garage for an estimate to get it fixed.
The best OBD2 scanner I could find was a handheld model that had a nice display. You could see all kinds of data that was running behind the scenes in our cars. It is amazing how many processes of the running engine and drivetrain are continually monitored. Plus, fault codes do not always result in a check engine light coming on. You can see logs and all kinds of information to improve the performance and fuel mileage of your car. Continue reading On-Board Diagnostics on Your New Car Can Be Read with a Handheld OBD2 Scanner
We started accepting scrap aluminum delivered by semis after we got our new scale. Aluminum scrap is lightweight, and a lot of it can fit in a regular trailer that connects to a tractor trailer combo. I was wondering why my boss had me look for 70 ft truck scales for sale. It was so we could accept scrap from a company that uses regular trailers to haul it in. A company that sells scrap to us loads the long enclosed trailers using forklifts. A block of wood is placed in the front of the trailer, and a cable is run to the back. Then the trailer is loaded. When we get it, we hook a winch to the cable and use it to pull the block out, and the aluminum all comes out with it.
By summer we are adding a lift that will tilt the truck and the trailer backwards to get everything to slide into a big receiving hopper. We can then process many more tons of aluminum scrap. Continue reading Adding a New Truck Scale to Our Scrap Yard
If you are a beginner of the fishing of carp or a manufacturer experienced of bait always can learn something that will make a big difference in your success! Semolina is one of those ingredients more used of bait carp in recipes, but why is this? Semolina carbohydrates are used for energy and other roles and nutritional functions also! Semolina is one of the foundations of carp baits to find out more details about what is, how it is best used and why tent like it!
is my assumption that besides eggs and many others common kitchen and food that pioneers creators of bait tried in their baits of the carp, that semolina was something people tried to and found in the principle to be functionally useful. Semolina is a substance carrier that can be exploited in other baits and boilies using its capacity to absorb any of many different liquids.
of winter or indeed any other time of the year is ideal for the semolina since is a carrier of invaluable for any liquids stimulating within their baits that helps to makes bait more economic!
you just add water boiling to semolina powder and will notice how this reacts with gluten, lectin, etc. in the starches that unite. When it cools, you can pull out a tasty solid mass once a powder granular flow! I am sure that like me, many homemade baits notice this property and use this property! Of course anyone who never added sugar or Strawberry Jam or syrup of maple or cinnamon to your useful grits grits known as more palatable carrier of substances that make you eat more!
semolina as its simplest form is a functional link bulking ingredient not only boilies or pastes but a great variety of formats of ground bait and other baits also. Its use as a cheap notebook, economic means that it has been a pillar in carp baits for decades. Stroll the semolina has been used like this against other carbohydrates and starch binders and other energy sources and I have some personal suggestions that uses hard and soft forms of wheat flour and for decades.
other sources commonly used on several occasions and in several countries are normal wheat flour and all food, layers of mash and another crushed grain vegetalesby and bird seed and pet food, corn and flour corn, soy flours and meals of soybean, peanut flour and other foods of nut and Tiger nut flours and meals of rice potato flour , starch of maize, flour, powder of flan, Lamlac, Vitamealo and others rich in energy low protein milk in powder. Also: polenta, farina, potato starch, cracked corn or grains and other starches and also sources rich in sugar and modern sources include vanilla and CC Moore CLO, Meggablends extract powder etc.
in terms of nutrition, proteins are presented as the most important factor in the manufacture of carp baits. There is a huge difference between making baits that comply with a series of essential nutritional requirements, compared with baits that are truly optimized for feeding fish trigger! All you have to do is look at lists of ingredients of top quality food grade koi fish and aquaculture feeds to make such foods not is really optimized to make fish as these are commitments of fish feeding and nutritional requirements essential for power supply activation.
baits must certainly not contain essential nutrients to enable the supply of excellent fish! This comes as a relief to people concerned about the complexities of amino acids, peptides and optimize actions of carp digestive enzymes etc and you can certainly do without proteins and proteins from fish bait bait, this is even if they are active or optimized enzyme for digestion.
carbohydrates as found in wheat flours including hard (semolina) flour of durum wheat in the past used to be considered part of lower baits, even as junk called baits as his convertible and also trigger nutritional value of power density are lower in comparison with other ingredients that are much more powerful in the properties and characteristics However, carbohydrates are vital to the tent!
not only this but called crap of low nutritional value bait have caught literally millions of tents includes many records of Lake and a large 60 more Lake record Lake Rainbow in the past! Even very popular circuit water have been destroyed by semolina baits of carbohydrates, including the capture of most of the big fish in the large lake Darenth when more than one ton of these baits was used in a season to my knowledge!
carbohydrates have extremely valuable health and functions internally. Many ways that proteins essential as essential and semi-essential amino acids are used within the body involves the formation of important substances which are formed by the combination of molecules of carbohydrates and amino acids, including things such as protective fish slime and mucus protective that is secreted by the eyes and the receptor, as in the nasal cavities sites. It is so many liners that ensure that fish does not dry instantly and critically damaged when you take them out of the water to catch!
I guess that you can see now how much more important is to have fish in fresh and shading and water to keep them conditions wet when out of the water, especially in the summer heat and wind too!
I guess that the reason the meal became more popular (in boiled pasta boilies) soft wheat flour, was that apart from its qualities of link baits, hard durum wheat (semolina) flour is also a hardener of bait, not instantly soluble in water and is virtually a substance that makes sticky bait recipes more able to be rolled into balls in the box of rolling and easily extruded by machine etc without sticking problem.
semolina makes firmer and more resilient baits ordinary thin soft wheat flour. But now everyone knows that hardness is not for pest species called consumption the hardest baits anyway! Personally for homemade pasta, I prefer soft soluble not semolina flour, but definitely for those who want to roll boilies is a practical ingredient.
in my experience there is absolutely nothing at all negative about bait soft especially using more binders water-soluble or genuine wheat flour and normal flour! I’ve taken the largest carp numbers using soft wheat flour in my baits and not semolina, and is also a valuable part of my Earth baits of many formats also! The semolina is not as soluble and not as energy-efficient digested by carp.
soft wheat flour is also used much less is another great advantage and let us not forget that bread which is used in mixtures of palo etc is made of soft fine soft high wheat flour gluten! Revealed in my unique bait Ready Made and homemade bait carp and catfish bait secrets ebooks is much more powerful information look my unique web site (Baitbigfish) and see my biography below for the details of my ebooks now offers!

We are almost ready to open up the club, but the boss never seems to be happy with what has been done. Obviously he is putting a lot of money in the place, but the big thing seems to be that he wants to impress people. For example I hired a place that does web design in Gwinnett county to build us a web page. I thought that it looked really good the first time they showed it to us, but he has made them change things a half dozen times already. It is really getting to be pretty tedious, but obviously the money is his and he gets to do with it whatever he wants. It is sort of comical however, but I realize that there is a different point to it than to make money. The boss is in his late thirties and he is divorced for the second time.

I knew that I was in trouble on the day that a police officer knocked on my door because I had not shown up my work for the fifth straight day due to the alcohol binge I was on.. Not long after, I booked myself into a Miami rehab center to try to get help. That day had been coming for a long time, but I had been putting it off for many years. It was time to get clean, and there was no way that I was going to be able to do it all by myself. I had tried to do so on my own, and I failed to do it on my own. Denial was my enemy, and I had been allowing denial to dwell inside of me for far too long.
I wish parents would tell their kids that they shouldn’t drink not only because it is illegal if under age, but because you could soon become a drunk. Continue reading I Needed Expert Support to Get Me out of the Trouble I Was in
