I have and pretty sure Slayer did also. Shore fishing is great 1/2 oz to 1 oz silver spoons and same size jigs in white. Rattle traps blue silver and green silver work in the breaking water. Find some rocks and you might luck into a Rooster, actually fishing is always better by rocks.. I would also leave the 11' surf rod at home . Try the Panga stuff too, cheap and fun.
