Well that's too small.You might wind up with small butter fish or pompano's.
My ideal rig would be no more than a 1/8th oz lead head or buck tail,tied on to small diameter fluoro-carbon on an ultra lite tackle.
I've never targeted croaker with lures, but I've caught a few fishing for other species, mainly on small grubs. If the "weakfish" are Greys stick with the smaller leadheads and grubs, if they're Speckled use the bigger baits such as Mirrolures or larger grubs. Any color pattern for both, change if what you're using isn't working. As far as the type of grub Fin S, Storms, Mr. Wiffle, Bass Assasins, whatever is your choice, anything goes.
thanks for the info like i said a dude told me he used a squid looking & color for the croakers but i dont have any prob catching them on th bottonm next time the bite slow down ill try a couple different of these jigs just not today RC
I have cleaned up on croaker with a big sabiki out at Seagull. I saw someone else doing it, so I used mine, and we caught VERY good sized ones until we got tired of it. I think I had the 'baby shrimp' kind. I intend to do it again!
Fish the first time i ever used th shibiki was down on dock st caught white pearch american shad herring sall rockfish never thought bout using it to many other places il surely give it a try just not today RC
