Hello all,

Looking for some tips to put a couple on teenagers on some fish at the Navarre Pier and near pier in surf. Rigs, bait, lures, additional pier needs.

The folks at Half-Hitch Tackle in Navarre (south side of 98 and across from the Winn-Dixie) or the Pier staff can set you up. Bubble Rig's, Gotcha's are your two "go to" lures. Be careful with the Gotcha's, they are very sharp and will literally get ya. It got me 4 years ago to the point of having to drive to the Emergency Clinic with it still in my thumb and get it cut out. However, it does a magnificent job on Spanish Mackerel in the same manner. Deeeelicious!!

My first Spanish was on a red/copper Gotcha! My son and I have had our best luck with the following:

1. King rigs with live bait caught off a sabiki (I buy these from a boat captain in Tampa who makes them out of piano wire and sells them on eBay)

2. Yo-Zuri 3D crystal minnow

3. Pyramid sinker rig with live or cut bait

To minimize downtime, we bring 6 rods with us and keep two of them set up with sabikis. Of the others, two are set up with 20# green fluoro/50# leaders and the others are 80# braid with wire leaders. I hate running wire but after several years of telling myself "I could've had him with a wire but I'd feel like I was cheating" I gave in lol.
