The spots are running on the Grand Strand. They seem to hit best on a descending tide. Spring Maid pier was the better of the two piers we tried this weekend. Bloodworms or red worms are best if you can find them. There is a new synthetic blood worm being sold . You cut the strips in 1/4" pieces and put on a #6 or 8 hook. Seems to work well but rather expensive. $8 a bag, but you can throw them in the tackle box and forget them.
