Default Brown Sharks of the Beach

I have been reading recently about brown sharks and how to catch them off the beach.

My conclusions are as follows:

The further south you head in NJ from July to Sept.the better for this fishing
You will need at least 80lb mono or wire as a leader and a 8/0 circle hook imbedded in an oily fish (bunker or bluefish)
Rods: Surf rods (8-11 feet)
Reels: A few Hundred yards of 40-50lb mono/braid


Are these guidelines correct?

Would it be better to fish from the beaches of Manasquan or somewhere farther south, such as Island Beach State Park? Later in the month, I will be in Cape May and hope to try it there, also.

Tight lines,

Capesquan

Does the tide matter at all in fishing for the brown sharks?

I hear that the "sandbar" sharks are right beyond the sandbars, which are more exposed at low tide. Would that tide make that much of a difference?

I dont really fish from the beach, but sharks are opportunists and i think they would feed on the fish that get stuck at low tide. When im down south, the sharks like to feed at sunset, could be the same here. Many of the reports i read for from seaside said the tide was not really a factor. They were catching bigger ones at night.
