Bob Hall Pier with live shrimp under a popping cork in the lights at night during a rising tide would seem to be a safe bet for trout and reds. Keep a sabiki rig with a 1 oz. pyramid sinker handy and let her dangle it under the pier. Some tremendous catches of menhadeden, yellow tails, shad, and even the occasional speck can be had that way. If you don't mind hardheads, squid fished on the bottom with a small hook is a virtual guarantee. Hope to catch whiting that way. Good luck...it's always so much fun seeing kids catch fish.
