I've been fishing juno pier for about 2 years now. and i seem to have luck catchin anything thats biting but for some reason bluerunners are fooling me this time a year. all i can seem to get is macs and thats great and all but i need something that i can sell to the market. i like to eat the macs but i really wish i knew the secret to catchin those big blue runners on the beach or on the piers. i can catch em all day in my boat but the saes are rough and im tired of wasting gas on runners. i can catch em all winter onthe piers but the summer ones seem to fool me :oops: i dont know if any of you are against commercial fishing but i aint around here to destroy the oceans as some of you who know me should know. but i love fishing with a passion and the feeling of filling a cooler is the best lol. any ideas? thanks :nilly: thanks and tight lines to all :reeling:

Cut squid on a pompano rig or small jigs generally work well. Leader rigs with live summer baits work when the bait is around as well.

when i used to live right by there, the guys that would commercial fish them would use like fishnfool said squid on pompano rigs, crappy jigs and also goofy jigs with the teaser that seemed to always get a mess of them
