I wet wade sometimes if it's not too cold out. The bite was hot those days.

Last time I surf fished was in Florida, used a cast net to get mullets for bait then cast way out.  Never knew what you'd catch

Chest waders are the way to go, you stay nice and warm. If you go that route just make sure you wear a snug belt around the middle so if you do get swamped your waders won't fill you up and you end up being a statistic. Wearing hip boots, you'll end up filling them with water in no time, it just happens. Even in waders I rarely go out passed my knees, mostly just for a cast then work my way back to where I'm about to my knees again. Never take your eyes off the surf, it will get you.

Also to add, you would really be surprised how close they actually are to shore in the little shallows. You don't need to wade way out.

My tactic today was. Hip waders ,run out knee high cast out 3 oz weight far as I could run back to shallow with bail open than tighten up. Got one Wave over my boot but not too bad.

Surf fished today. Fished 2 hours, but the bite only lasted the first 30 minutes I was there. Landed 4 redtail surf perch, missed about 8 more bites. Also landed 3 dungeness crabs.

I really enjoyed surf fishing in Florida, never knew what you'd catch, 30lb red, baby shark, something bright blue that spooled you....
