Anyone target these on the fly rod?
When I've fished artificial plugs and tails I might have caught by total accident just a very small handful in hundreds and hundreds of hours of fishing. Fly fishing I've never targeted them but seem to pick up a few fairly often mainly while targeting speckled trout and flounder fishing structure and sign. Not ever having targeted Croaker, I don't know much about their preferences or seasonal patterns. Seems like the only pattern I've been able to come up with is they seem to like to be near oyster reef. I'd like to know more about their preferences for water and structure, but really don't know where to start. Maybe they just hang out with the other fish and picking up a couple here and there is as good as it gets. They are pretty tasty and that's the main reason I even care.
