hello all,
as the topic title suggests "Are 'Swim Shads' good for pier / shore fishing ? '. I generally fish from piers. Basically i need to know how effective are Swim Shads in a pier environment. Generally i have seen people her fish with sabiki rigs, but they usually catch small baitfish. is it any good ,with using the swim shad to catch the larger ones? or are swim shads not the type for pier fishing. what do my fellow anglers here suggest ??

Shads work great when there are predators around and are effective anywhere because of there lively action.

You can get Groupers and MJ's around piers and these will hit shads given the opportunity, just remember to increase your line strength, when changing to predators.

I am having the following eqipment setup
2 piece carbon fibre MH spinning rod
reel spooled with 12lb mono line
storm wildeye 'sd' swimshads.

Would this be enough ?

It should do perfect.
You can eventually change to a thiner braid line while keeping the same 12lb strength.
My main worry with predators from shore are the rocks these will treat mono like butter.
If you dont fish around rocks great if you do add a shockleader of 50lb flurocarbon to your set for those fast runs around rocks.
You mention piers and at the bottom of these you some times have rocks and the piers itself gain sharp edges so i would add a shock leader.
