bait/lure: bloodworms,cut squid, cut croaker and fish bite.For the lure I use, gulp alive shrimp 2" with a drop shot.

Rods/lines: 6-7 foot med- action to mid-heavy action rods 10-20. When using lures use a light action rod 4-5.

Weights: #2-3 pyrimid at sandy areas and round at rocky areas.

habitat: look for shelly areas, rocks, jettys and muddy areas. STAY AWAY FROM ROUGH SHOULS AND CLEAR WATER WITH CORAL REEF.

Bait: I use bloodworms,and cut squid. You could use fishbites. Or cut croaker. If you are using cut bait cut it 1 inch. If you are using fishbites cut it 1\2 inches.

Tackle: Croakers are bottom feeders so use a 1 oz and up sinker. I use a 2 oz sinker. Use a two hook rig bottom and top. Use a 10 to 20 pound test line. As hook I use a Mustad - Croaker Hook.

Rod and reel: I use an ultra-light rod because it is more fun to fight the fish with.

Hot Spots: Chesapeake bay: Sea gull pier, Kiptopeke State Park, Oceanview Pier.

easy to catch. cut bait (other croaker) or shrimp on a tandom rig with a 3-4 oz sinker has never let me down. i usuall bring just enough bait with me to land a few fish, then use cut whiteing that i catch.

A very simple fish to catch if you are a beginning saltwater fisherman. Use a small size 10 hook tied straight to line and a 2oz weight about 16 inches above the hook. Take pieces of shrimp and drop straight down. I caught 9 croakers with this setup in one hour!

Atlantic croaker love eating cut croaker or cut white trout.

Put weight at end of line, then leader with decent size hook. cut small squid into strips . Put a strip of squid on hook and let half of squid trail.

Cast out and leave on bottom... You can rig a couple of leaders and catch two at a time.
