The owner of Fricso Tackle shop had taken three already this year, he said; all three were full of peeler crabs. So peelers are what I'd like to be able to take, myself, besides the bluefish/spot/croaker baits.
I use a fish finder rig an hook em in th tail about 1-1/2" from th tip. Some cut th tip of th tail off to try an cut down on th eel wraping up in th rig. As far as what else will eat em, sharks love em,bluefish will hit em as will striper. Unfortunately so will skates.
