My best advice is two fold go the week before or the week after me and use whatever bait I don't use! Then you'll be in the fish big time....:fishing: :D

Clams and BUnker are not abundant down here. In fact, you wont even be able to buy menhaden anywhere around here. Its just not that popular. Mullet is. Youll do fine with that and I sugest that anything you catch small to use for bait as well such as small seamullet heads or croakers cut up. Of course you cant ever go wrong with shrimp.

Yeah, find some FRESH sand fleas. I fished the surf at wrightsville at low tide and the mullets tore em up; shrimp didn't do well at all. Blues are tearing the cut mullet up.
