You are in the water when surf fishing!

There is a big difference when fishing from a boat and from the water. You are close to the fish when surf fishing. Be aware that a satchel of fish can attract predators to your catch. So if there are sharks or other aggressive large fish you may want to remove your catch from the water. Temperature of the air and water is key for safe surf fishing. Know what the temperature is and gear up accordingly.  It doesn’t take long to get hypodermic when surf fishing in cold water. Be careful and catch lots of fish when surf fishing the Mississippi Gulf Coast Beaches.
