New to Saltwater fishing, going to the outer banks in July..
Hey guys so a buddy and me will be going to OBX on the weekend of July 12th. I am extremely new to salt water fishing. We will be fishing from a pier as well as trying some surf fishing. Besides a bottom rig with bait, what types of lures should we be throwing? I have a Gotchya Plug and the last time (and only time) I fished on a pier I loved throwing that.
Also just any general tips and suggestions would be really appreciated
I was reading online that for blues, which should be pretty active this time of year, a top water plug can be really effective right past the breakers. So I had 2 questions
1. Does conditions for top water fishing matter in saltwater the same way that it does for freshwater bass fishing? If so, what conditions are good for topwater?
2. I am only going to grab one for this trip since I really only make it to the beach about once a year anyways. What would a good color and brand/type be that should work a majority of the time?
