Fishing for the Spot
A small fish called the spot or Lafayette is found in abundance all along the coast from New York southward. It seldom, if ever, goes over a pound in weight. It is a fine food fish and a good fighter. They are caught in large numbers in the brackish water at flood tide in spring and fall, and in less numbers during summer! A light bait rod, 9 thread linen line and No. 6 Pennell hook, with a light sinker six inches above the hook is a nice outfit for them. The hooks should be baited with small bits of clam or sand worms, and sometimes they take shedder crab. The bait should be just large enough to cover the end of the hook.
