First the gear questions. Was at the ov pier and some ppl caught some little croaker last weekend, I think my hooks were too big. So, what size hooks do you typically use and what rod and reel combo? I have a 7’ medium rod but seemed stiff for what was being caught and for lures(trying to learn how to use artificial, more questions to come). Do you guys typically bring lighter tackle? And for the pier, anyone fish James River pier? Is it brackish? We walked it and saw some flounder and spot and maybe a speckled trout come over the rail or in someone’s cooler. Never see a report on it so wasn’t sure if it’s a good place to fish. Might run up there next weekend. Anyway thx!
