SSC Tackle Tip  Many surf fisherman like to use teasers with bombers, but how many of you use them with bucktails?  Try it, you will find that you may get many more hits when the fishing is slow.

SSC Tackle Tip:  "After each trip to the surf you should wash down all your equipment with fresh water and allow to dry.  Also, inspect your guides for small cracks using a cotton ball.  Don't forget to loosen your drags before storing away the rod."

SSC Beach Buggy Tip: Airing Down/Up  To make life at little easier when driving on the beach try using a set of Oasis Tire Deflators design to deflate tires in seconds with pre-set p.s.i.  When you want to air up each tire in less than 1 minute try using a Co2 tank such as the "Ultimate Air Co2 Tank".  These devices will save you time and aggravation as well as getting you on the beach faster and back home sooner!
