this is a fine fish to catch and eat fish for them always when in season

these fish really don't like lures they prefer live bait and squid left at the bottom of bays

when fishing in a bay a live minnow with a strip of squid worked great on a jig this caught me tons of fish and if u dont at first wait for high tide then its a matter of minutes

Use Three Way Swivels with bait and a sinker use long strips of squid

Use clean sharply cut strip baits and change them often. This fish is more particular than many when it comes to presentation and a quality hookbait.
