What are some of the best lures or things to CAST in the surf? Not really looking at cut bait and tight line.

I usually use soft plastics in dark colors and sometimes a topwater early. Occasionally a large silver spoon.

Gulp shrimp on a jighead under a popping cork will get you bit.

New penny, or the natural looking one. I haven't really noticed a huge difference. If the fish are there, they're there.

I throw a bone topwater at sun up and a 5" pearl or white soft plastic paddle tail soon there after. (Any brand will work becouse fish don't care)

Always the bone topwater at sun up for me. Skitterwalk or supersoook if choppy and if calm Iíll go down a size.
Spoons and MR mentioned above are great too

I always skip the topwater bite, I like to use big plastics. Down South Super Model in plum/treuse or 5" Hogie in plum/treuse.

Iíve always had great luck with mirrorlures. Take sinking, suspending and floaters so you cover all the columns the fish might be feeding in.

Don't overthink it. Any of the main soft plastics. A spoon is great too.

If I get there soon enough I'll throw a topwater until I can see. Usually from less than knee deep water, then plastics. The last time I went down I fished in the headlights/light bars for about 20 mins it was so dark

This right here. Casting directly into the wind working quickly with rod tip up.

Throw what gets bit. I start off with dark topwater (black/char head), then switch to a Texas roach or plum/char soft plastic, if I donít get hit pretty quick on that, I switch to a spoon, if I donít get hit with that, I switch to a bone or mullet mirrodine, if I donít get hit with that, I switch to a gulp under a popping cork, if I donít get hit with that, I go home and enjoy the day.

This. 808 is the color On that one. Or you can try the 51 or 52 series in 11FGO. The 51 is nose pull, and 52 is top pull. My two favs in hard baits. As stated above also the bone color top waters, or any top water with white body and red head.

Plastics I like bass assassin type baits.

Gold or silver spoons also work well as said.

Top waters (dont be afraid to throw them anytime of day) vary retrieve sometimes they want it fast others very slow.
Pink/chrome
Bone
Oakie shad (chartreuse back clear side and white belly super spook)
White red head

Tails:
Limetruese
Purple/ white tail
Plum chartreuse tail
Morning glory
Opening night

Tandem rigged minnow baits (H&H cochahoe minnow)
Clear silver glitter / chartuese tail
Pearl / chartreuse tail
Black chartreuse tail

When it gets slow I would try a DOA clear with gold glitter shrimp under a popping cork. ( works real well if Sargasso weed is floating around or matted up.)

3/4 oz gold or silver spoon.

Mirror lures and Mirrordines work great once the top gets slow. Pink/Chrome Skitter works for top. If they wont hit that switch to Mirror Lures or soft plastics in colors mentioned above.. Old faithful Gold Spoon can be very productive also..

I have a friend that slays them in the surf on Corkys but I just cant fish that slow..
