    A nice fresh chunk of Bunker or Mullet if fishing from the surf. Up in Ches. Bay, a nice lively eel is hard to beat.

    Of course that's up here in N.C. & VA. I don't know what you Florida boys do down there.

    i hooked onto a monster Cobia over the summer on a finger mullet about 4 inches long. It snapped me off about 15 minutes into the fight

    take a grunt or a legal mangrove with a pair of scissors cut the fin across his back off hook in the middle of back ,use a light sinker when your rig gets too bottom it'll start kicking a big cloud of mud and sand i catch blacks and gags this way too going to try this on the ocmulgee this summer
