The mode of fishing practiced by salt-water anglers and much in vogue along the eastern coast is what is known as surf-casting. It is a sort of bait-casting from the beach into the ocean surf where certain fish such as channel bass and striped bass resort to feed on crabs, sea worms and certain shell fish that stay just at the edge of the deep water made by the waves in the sand. At a certain distance out this line will be found, a sudden deepening of the water, a cut of from a few inches to several feet deep. In this water is where the surf-casting is done, that is to say, the bait is cast to that place.
