Whiting tend to be around more with colder water temperatures.. As far as bait goes, small pieces of shimp/peeled shrimp work best. As far as the rig, either a double drop rig with 12# or so fluorocarbon leader and a small hook like a #4.

There are plenty around now. Location can be critical. Fish deep troughs and washouts that have a lot of current

I've done well with a pompano jig with a teaser fly sweetened with a small piece of peeled shrimp. Also a carolina rig with a 10-12 hook; i used the same hooks to tie wooly buggers.
