|Yeah Stan, you're definitely welcome to join us @ the beach!
Waders aren't necessary--you could get by with simple rubber boots. Because we never wade deeper than our knees anyways (too dangerous at beaches that are mid-bay w/bigger waves, currents, etc). But waders keep you warm on those cold windy afternoons. I bring my waders and rubber boots = if it's nice I just wear the rubber boots and tuck my pants into the boots. If it's cold, I put on my waders.
Unlike shore rockfishing, you don't need to bring much gear. If I'm targeting stripers, I'll just bring 2 lures. If I might target perch too, I'll bring a small (5x4") box w/a couple sinkers, swivels, hooks, and grubs. In most cases, I don't even need a backpack. Which is good, because you want to be mobile and keep moving down the beach while casting.
I'm not sure if we are fishing tomorrow--gotta check the forecast & tides. But I'd like to fish if it isn't windy.
Oh I'm sorry, I thought this was America?! hahaha
