Double drop bottom rig w/or w/o the red bead or skirt, size 4 regular shank hooks (size 6 if they runnin' on the small side), squid or calamari for the rest of ya (fresh shrimp if ya got the jack or blood worms if ya double dipping for spot too), and a 2-3 oz sinker.
Yo bucket, two weekends ago avg was 15 with 17-17.5" mixed in.Since then th size has dropped although I did get 1 18"er on Thur night.
Me I go simple,fish finder rig with a 4/0 gami circle.(No gut hooks yet) but think I should go down to a 1/0 or 2/0 to increase hook ups.Using 4oz of weight mostly to practice but th first time I went out they were hitting way out an not close. Since then they are hitting everywhere except my rig. If I get th clean up on th Prkway set up ya wanna come up so I can show ya how ta get skunked?
A net is alot harder to use by yourself than hook and line but I figured I might be able to get a couple of fish for dinner and sometimes you can catch them in a net but not on hook and line and sometimes the other way around but I still got skunked but had fun either way
