Dakota,

Just remember that some of those fish can and have been caught from the beach but are not common or targeted specifically.

These would fall under that category...cobia, cod, king mackerel, albies (unless you're in Central or Northern Jersey), pollock, spanish mackerel. The lizardfish, pompano, stargazer etc. are a by-catch of beach fishing.

And let's not forget the fish that I personally target most (or at least that's what it seems).

The ever allusive:

Mr. Sandshark and Mr. Sea Robbin

Add bluefin tuna to the list. They come way inshore like albies at times.

Like Steve said, you can catch a lot of odd stuff off the beach, but can you really specifically target it for fishing?
