    Good afternoon everyone!

    As the title says Im finally bringing my 2 boys out to fish for the first time! We'll be fishing Harbor island. My question is what type/kinds of artificial lures work best? Drop shot? Warbaits? Swimbaits? Any advice and help is greatly appreciated!

    3-4” paddle tail swimbaits on a 1/4-3/4oz, drop shot 3-4” chartreuse swimming mullets or minnows. Also soaking bait always works. C-rig with squid, clams, dines, etc etc.. Even drop shotting them. Goodluck.

    My suggestion for first timers is dropper loop rig with a circle hook and 4" chartreuse gulp mullet.
