Rifts and Structure

Even though we all have our favorite times to surfcast for our prize, what do you use to determine WHERE you will surf cast?  Here is how Striper Mike and most of his fellow hot shots pick their spots.  Choose a high spot, they are hard to find on beaches...but any incline will do.  Go to that spot at DEAD LOW TIDE and look at where you will be casting to later in the tide.  Even though the beach or area may seem to be all the same.....low tide will tell you different.  Subtle rifts and structure may offer you the key to that days high tide.  Don't just cast to the horizon......cast to where you think your trophy will be.  Add intelligence to your luck.
