I do every chance I get, we have a condo on amelia island so I always drive out on the beach to the southern tip of the island for fishing. Amelia island is aka San Fernandina beach on the atlantic coast of northern florida just above Jacksonville.

Damn is right! that is one fishing rig to say the least. I like is lots, but more than I would ever need. I just found a nice set up that I would / and will get from Quadratec.....it has 4 rod holders you can mount to your 2 " hitch and will be nice for my needs.

I love to fish and that is a very cool setup....thanks for showing.

I run Island Beach State Park on the Jersey shore.

If you are new to beach driving be sure to air down and go in 4lo. Carry a shovel, strap, and a jack base. Park above the high tide line because you do not ever want to be stuck below the high tide line. Many beaches require beach passes and post requirements and restrictions. Ask the locals for tips.

In the 7 years I've been driving the beaches I've never had to use 4-lo. Not sure what kind of sand you have there...


Airing down is the most important thing for you, and carrying the correct tools like mentioned above. Shovel, strap(no metal ends), and a jack base. Some places require more stuff like a porta-potty. You'll definitely want to carry bug spray for the green flies. You will have to check your local sites for permit info. Up here the biggest tire size they allow is 33x12.50, not that they check... Hopefully not, I'll be switching to 35's this year.... :shitstorm:

I have to use 4 low the majority of the time in on the beach. The further down the Texas coast you go thR tougher and softer the beaches are

Still surprised at that because in softer sand momentum is your best friend. When you let off the pedal in 4-lo you lose all momentum. Softer sand tells me to just air down more. I'm sure you know what's best for your location. We have one beach the is like a deep sandbox, I still never use 4-lo. If I'm bogging down it just means I didn't air down enough.

You drive to Sore Thumb from Robert Moses parking lot (west end)?
My bad, those were all Democrat Point... Was looking at other pics from Sore Thumb when posting. Should have realized that there weren't a million people sunbathing with their families. Kids in the water while you're trying to fish... lol
