Archerman, I moved your thread into the N.E. forum in hopes you'd get some more replies.
Not sure of the exact start times for your run down there as I am in NH, but try to "match the hatch" when it comes to fishing the Run. Live bait presentation are ofcourse always the top-pick. But I have plenty of luck with various topwater presentations (wood and plastics), swimbaits, and the occassional swimming plug. I always smear herring scent Smelly Jelly on artificials as well.
I had alot of luck during the Spring Run last year using a Tsunami TS popper, dark back w/ silver holographic belly. And dont forget the Smelly Jelly!
