I would like to try and give these fish a go this weekend, assuming they are still around. All the pictures I see are of people catching blacks in the daylight. Are they pretty much daytime feeders?

Phil, I was wondering the same thing,,,I am setting one rod out tonight with clam and see what happens,,,I would think they are similar to their cousins, hardhead, reds, which can feed at night.

Scott, that is a good point. I assumed they were daytime feeders, but you are right about the croakers.

Hi Jettyrat and welcome to the board! I use an awesome rig that coop showed me how to use. The hook size is 8/0 circle and I'm not sure exactly how long they stay in the surf. I do know they like the water temps around 55.
