I'm wanting to try big lake pier fishing. I've done some saltwater pier fishing and a bit of surf fishing in Florida. So I have the basic gear...just looking for some pointers and wondered if anyone would be there to help a guy out...I'm thinking tomorrow night (9-14)

little cleo and moonshine casting spoons are usually good. Fish have been around the mud for a while but some days they have lock jaw.

The only way to know if they are biting is to try!

Good luck

I'd run some stickbaits. Typically this time of year, and especially after they've been staging for awhile, they really turn onto them. Reef Runners, J-13 Raps, and most other diving body-baits are excellent. A slow, steady retrieve is good to start, but always mix it up.

yep....husky jerks ...original floaters...maulers ....and stop your retrieve out a bit from the pier every now and then...or if your using spoons stop and give a couple jigs right at the wall...I've hit many fish right on the wall
