i've gone twice in the past week, and both times i used whole small shrimps. They seemed to work well...one night, i caught 2 cats and around 18 croakers in about 5 hours. go deeeeeep on the pier. around the last port-a-potty. i've seen a lot of people using shrimp..so the fish might be tired out from them. haven't see anyone use chicken strips...but go ahead and try. bloodworms will catch you some perch... i really recommend small shrimp. $5 for a pound at Giant
