Default Blue runners

I have heard them called hard tails so I'm not sure of the name. I know how to catch pinfish with a sabiki. I would like to know how to catch some of these for bait...

I like to troll a mackerel tree around the pass while fishing for bait. Trolling under 4 knots has always produced. You can cover some space and still chase bait pods. Once I find one, then I toss the sabiki.

i've found "sweetening" sabikis with bits of squid,shrimp, cut bait works well for hard tails. I don't know if they school together or what but i do seem to catch pins, hard tails, and pig fish. I just group them all under the name of grunt or bait.

Little pieces of bait on the sabiki rig has always worked for me as long as the hard tails are around, great bait if you get some!!!

Sabiki tipped with a little bit of shrimp. Or just gold hooks with shrimp on a drop shot rig works.
