    Bobber with fresh bait will catch, Fish in marsh or jetties.
    Spinner baits for largemouth will also do the trick.

    Where ya fishing?

    When fishing from the shore in Sandbridge I use small finger mullet and sandfiddlers on small circle hooks.

    Bait: Cut mullet/spot/crab/menhaden is what I typically use. Small live mullets on fish finder rigs or under bobbers will work too.

    Rigs: I use a 4/0 J-style hook on about an 18" 40 lb leader with a 1-2 oz egg sinker above it. The 40 lb leader is not for the size of the fish, but because I usually fish around oyster beds, and it holds up to the abrasion better.

    Locations: I like the mouths of creeks on the ebb tide. Or, channels/guts/sloughs that run into flats areas. They'll use these to move on and off the flats as the tide floods and ebbs.

    If you want to try some artificial, give these a try. I use various colors, but find white and chartreuse to work the best for me. Red or chartreuse jig heads ( various weights ) seem to work good.

    Actually that is a bad picture. It is not yellow but rather chartruese. I have caught many on yellow though. In almost 50 years of fishing for them I have caught them on just about every color.
