Its a good idea to wear a PFD while out surfcasting in case of a freak wave or needing to wade out deeper then is desirable to release a fish. A couple of times I had to wade out to retrieve fish which I tried to release but they turned into floaters… A PFD just makes it a little more safer.
I almost never wear mine
Can’t sleep. Completely exhausted from long Kayak paddle into strong wind. But adrenaline or something is keeping me awake way past my normal bed time Snapper fishing tomorrow night
