These fish can be caught on almost any kind of animal bait that is fished from piers or jetties in sandy or sandy mud areas. In fact, they are so easily hooked that most anglers consider them a nuisance of the worst sort. If a person desires to fish specifically for white croakers a tough, difficult-to- steal bait, such as squid, is recommended. When hooked, they put up little or no fight. Fishing and catching is good throughout the year.
