I fish from the beach here from time to time, and I might be motivated to give it a try today! 60 degrees or better, they say.
There's a creek here with virtually no current. I like to bring the long casting outfits, to cover alot of ground. With two poles (or more, if it's allowed), rigged with double or triple flouner hooks, and bloodworms - I cast as far as I can. I alternate picking up the poles, jiggling the rig along the bottom about 5 feet, tighten the line and set it back into the spike, and wait 5 minutes - then repeat until I get a tap or run, or need to check bait & cast again.
From the bridge with current running under it, away from the bridge, I will set out a chum pot, fish one pole right in front of it - bouncing it frequently, and cast another pole in line with the chum slick, out about 50 feet or so, and jiggle it a few feet and let it sit, like on the beach.
