3 minute read

The fall season brings a bountiful harvest of fish along the shoreline, and it's the perfect time to flex your fishing skills with the right fishing gear. Beach fishing in the fall requires a well-equipped angler who is prepared to tackle the elements, water conditions, and baitfish behaviors. In this blog, Beach Bum Outdoors highlights the essential gear you should have to make the most of your beach fishing experience during autumn. Are you ready to gear up and reel in the fish of your dreams this fall? Let's dive in!

1.  Rod and Reel Combos:

Beach fishing in the fall demands reliable and sturdy rod and reel combos designed for the rugged surf conditions. At Beach Bum Outdoors, we provide the perfect rod and reel combo for your fall beach fishing trip. The TFO GIS Surf Rod paired with the Shimano Stradic CI4+ Reel is an excellent choice for surf fishing. The TFO GIS Surf Rod is built with high-grade materials and advanced engineering, providing a powerful yet sensitive tip and backbone for maximum casting distance and strength. The Shimano Stradic CI4+ Reel is designed with cutting-edge technology to accommodate beach angling challenges. Its advanced drag system and anti-corrosion bearings make it the ultimate fishing machine for surf anglers.

2.  Fishing Line:

Fishing line is one of the most critical factors for successful beach fishing. During the fall, the water is often murky and choppy, which makes visibility difficult for fish. At Beach Bum Outdoors, we highly recommend using a fluorocarbon line due to its high sensitivity and low visibility underwater. The Seaguar Blue Label Fluorocarbon Fishing Line is an ideal choice for beach fishing in the fall. It's built with high-quality materials and specialized techniques to produce a super-strong line that resists abrasion and offers an ultra-thin diameter for enhanced sensitivity and casting distance.

3.  Lures and Baits:

The type of bait or lure you use during fall beach fishing depends on the kind of fish species you aim to target. Fish species like Pompano and Red Drum tend to be more active during the fall months. Beach Bum Outdoors suggests using Fishbites Bag O' Worms, a popular bait that provides anglers with a perfect mimic of the available inshore worm species. For lures, try using Gulp! Shrimp soft plastic lures to imitate the natural shrimp in the waters. Also, consider using Gotcha plugs, an excellent casting plug designed to catch all kinds of fish species.

4.  Tackle and Rigs:

Putting body and soul into a beach fishing trip can only deliver expected results if the rigging is right. At Beach Bum Outdoors, we offer a wide variety of tackles and rigs to help you tackle the challenges of fall beach fishing. A popular rig for fall beach fishing is the fishfinder rig. A fishfinder rig is an excellent option for surf fishing because it allows the weight to sit on the bottom while keeping the bait off the bottom, making it more visible and preventing snags.


With the right equipment, an angler can make the most of beach fishing during the beautiful fall season. The gear listed above are the essential items you need to be successful in your fishing endeavors during this time of year. Beach Bum Outdoors offers a wide selection of gear designed to meet the specific needs of fall beach fishing. So what are you waiting for? Gear up, head out, and make the most of this beautiful season on the shore.
