Yeah it’s been a while since I’ve been Surfcasting. looking forward to getting back into it with a vengeance this year!! But when I used to chase the moki I’d always take 3 rods. One heavy, one medium and one light. Cast one out and rig up the second. Cast that out and then if nothing was happening I’d rig up a light 8 foot set up with 4kg for just behind the first breaker. Most days I’d only get two rods going but some days when it was calmer and quieter I’d get the light set into the first wave. One day I got 2 Moki on the light set and nothing on the bigger ones! If there were plenty of doggies or Wrasse around some days i’d never get more than one rod out. Guess it just gives you something to do when it’s quiet and you can vary the distances to see where the fish are. Also good fun biffing lures around on the light set for kahawai etc.
