A mall white grub on ultra lite tackle.You can do the same for Puppy drum,Roundheads,small weakfish.

The key is small bait,and lite tackle.

If the Blues are in force,you will have a lot of tail-less grubs.

I have also caught them on small flies,tied on to Spec-Rig.

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.

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!
:D
