I did very well with the new tsunami 1/2 ounce curly tail swim baits.

The ultimate is a 1/2 pink rattlr rap. Also alot of guys on th board do reallt well with either zoom flukes ot curly tail grubs with 1/4 to 1/2 jig heads. Colors rainbow trout , bubblegum, and my favorite white. Even bass pattern work too. If you get into a school and they stop bioting change color or work a suspending plug. Best plugs lucky craft or any mirror lure catch 2000 suspenders pref 1/2 ounce

If looking for tiderunners-April,May & June are your primetime months and depending on the weather will determine which one of those months will be more productive.And my favorite lures are the BubbleGum SaltySuperFluke by ZOOM and a Black MirrOlure.



Once you get into the Summer Season with the spikes to 20"ers I have found that they just cannot resist the New Gulp Baits .

The 3" & 4" Minnow Grubs especially the Pink were HOT for me this past year..



Good Luck Next Year...

gulp shrimp were hot this year pulled a few bass on them as well. 1/4 ounce rattle trap also good.
Those smaller fish can be like knats either throw to different current eddis or tie on a bigger lure. The small guys maybe beating the tiderunners to the bait. But that maynot be the case either. Until we start snorkelling we won't know for sure

Nightstrikes have you ever used a pink rattle trap 1/2 ounce. Man it is awesome. You can special order them or go to basspro in baltimore

I still haven't figured tiderunners out yet & I probably never will :D

As for the summer weakies, livelining peanuts with light tackle worked for me this year as well as pink & black fin-s.

No, but that does sound like a great combo.I do have a couple of the Chrome in different sizes and have had alot of succes with them as well on Bass.

There is just something about that Pink color.

Night, you do anything with the gulps in the spring? Mean for tiderunners? I use the same as Nightstrikes, but prefer fineese pinkies, 5&1/2 inch. May 4 me is prime for tiderunners. have caught them on zooms also. "I" prefer fineese!

I really didn't start using the GULPS until later in the season. But this coming Spring I will be trying a little different approach with them Shrimp Patterns drifing them with the tide.

phish4fun,
The Little Egg Inlet/Great Bay area is always a great place to start looking for the early tiderunner fish.With a boat you can explore alot of structure that hold the Bigums,put your time in and for the most part nighttime is the best time... ;)


Good Luck,.,,
