Thanks Guys!
I'd be happy to see any other patterns the "local" talent uses at this time of year.
Clousers , epoxies and mushies work for me also. Also hot and tuti-fruiti color schemes.

I've also had good luck with larger patterns immitating "snapper blues" or even squid. My theory is that the blues or squid are around to eat the small bait also... and the bonito/albies would just as soon have a bigger meal! Also it makes your lure stand out from the mass of small bait.

This has worked for me in ACK and Harkers.

Be good to see what works for you? :)
