Well for pier I like live bait to liveline, but from shore cut bait is always a must for most fishing trips.

I like the live bait because i'm usually going for flounder or Kings from the pier, very seldom surf fish but when I do i'll have one with cut shrimp, fish or bloodworms and one with a live minnow.

It really depends what I am targeting. But my favorite is cut spot scaled and filleted into long strips. Most species will eat cut spot, especially when fresh.

For fishing the piers around here you cant beat bloods. Always catch somethin on em. I just have a good time catching the panfish usually. When I've got some extra time I'll take some cut bunker out on the end of the pier and chunk it out on my surf rod.
Tight lines and popped riggers

It more of a combination. Bloods to catch Spot, Spot for live lining and cut bait.

Really depends on the season and what you targeting
