I always hear how strong the current is there, but I mainly throw artificial lures so it isn't as much of a concern. I just wonder how stout the gear needs to be, and how heavy the weights when bottom or sheepshead fishing. For example, I don't ever need to go over 3/4 oz (that's 0.75...not 3 to 4) for sheeps in other spots, but many go overkill, in my opinion.
Nothing irks me more than guys showing up at the little bridge with surf rods, throwing fishbites on 3 oz sinkers, when 3/16 oz holds just fine.
I'm assuming this spot is different...but I bet most will still overdo it on the weights.
