Right about this time you get schools of menhaden (aka "bunker" to most fishermen, aka (incorrectly) "alewives" to Cheseapeake Bay fishermen) comprised of fish about 2-3 inches long that hang out just below the surface on the edges of the light lines from the pier lights, and that's what the Rock feed on.bitterchild said:So why is it suddenly "lure" time? bait won't work? Or is it that live bait is scarce
I use 1/2 oz. and 3/4 oz. rattletraps (like the 3/4 oz. more now because short rock almost never get them inside their mouths, just hooked on the outside, and you will be doing a lot of catch and release.Orest said:Any thing different about fishing off a pier with a RattleTraps, I have serveral for fresh water fishing. Are you using a steel leader? Are you casting out away from pier or are you casting along it? Am us to standing in a boat and casting, not a peir 20' above the water.
Anybody try any Rapala's out there??
What size RattleTrap are you using?
