I've had good luck shore fishing for channels with a nitecrawler, leech or cut sucker on a #4-1/0 hook on a 2' snell and a 1/2-2 oz barrel sinker. Hook size depends on the size of the bait you'll be using. Many guys are using cirle hooks for channels but I haven't made that jump yet.

Channels can be anywhere from a deep hole or channel to 2 ft of water during the day.

Good Luck.
