Whiting, kingfish, channel mullet, whatever you may call them, I view them as an under appreciated fish. Fun on light tackle, easy to catch and delicious eating.

 

Whats your whiting setup? 
 

Mine right now is a 9’ Ugly Stik GX2 Salmon/Steehead with a Penn Wrath 3000 and 10 Ib mono. Typically use dead shrimp for bait.

definitely something on the lighter side. I'm more of a fly and lure fishermen...but when I used to target them (both on the OBX and down in FL), something like a 4000 size shimano (which is pretty close to a 3000 size penn) on a 7 1/2 or 8' med light rod. The only exception is if you had to cast far for them... but then catching them on surf gear does not sound very fun
