If you are on a pier FRESH shrimp near the pilings is a good bet. Crabs are even better. Sandfleas will probably be you best bet if you are fishing the surf near a concentration of sandfleas. You ought to pick up a few pomopano and sea mullet(whiting ) with them this weekend. If you want spots then bloodworms or fishbites are your best bet. You will also want to use a #4 or #6 hook for spots and smaller whiting. The small drum, flounder etc,.move up to a #2 or so.
