Everyone at the end of the pier using blood worms was catching very large croakers. I started fishing about 3am and had a lot of fun. As soon as my bait hit the bottom. A large croaker snatched my bait. The croakers were running about 1-2 pounds average. Ran out of blood worms and the pier was selling them for 6.99! Well, that was too expensive for my blood. The bite did tail off about dawn.
