Default Bait question

Have a question. I hear people catching spanish on Live LY's. What is this bait and where do you catch it. Also, are they using mono line or braided line for this application?

prolly around the bridges. Catch them with a bait net if your spanish fishing or super small gold hook or sabiki rigs. Use say 40 to 60# mono leader or 20# sevenstrand or wire. Go to a reputable bait & tackle shop for better info.

LY/ Threadfin herring/ Alewives/ bait are gathered up by cast nets but you can get them on sabiki rigs, I've have the most luck with very small hooks on the rigs.

All around the pilings like others have said cast net, sabiki for larger ones. The lighter leader you use the more hook ups but you will loose some fish, its a trade off.
