The Atlantic Croaker is characterized by a bronze or gold upper half and a muttled, lighter or white bottom half. The top half may have a series of garbled stripes extending from top to about half way down its sides. The lower jaw has a grouping of "feeler" barbels and its appearance has a high profile, with a sloping forehead and a rounded beak.

These fish are found along sandy or shelled bottoms mostly in the surf and in deeper channels and cuts.

Live or dead shrimp and crabs, cut fish or cut squid make for the best natural bait, while jigs are the best artificial bait.
