    As long as you keep to a max of 4oz leads and dont try to cast to Germany lol you should be ok mate.
    Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

      if your gonna be casting any distance you will need a shockleader of at least 10lb for every ounce you chucking, you have to think of everyones safety as well as your own
      i've seen some accidents and very near misses whilst beachcasting with people trying to cast without shockleaders suicide!!!

        If your fishing off the pier,you shoud'ny need to cast that far really,50 or 60 yds will do ya.

            tunna is right you will need 40lb shockleader and rule of thumb is length of your rod and 2 turns round the spool.Shock Leader knot and shock leaders for surfcasting Striped Bass
