In the early stages of MTT's, you should really be looking for these fish at your table, and try to get into pots with them as cheaply as possible with a wide array of hands. Any pair, suited connectors, unsuited connectors, suited one-gappers, preferably in position.
You can play tight, as the blinds are not worth stealing, but what you are looking to do is exploit the fishes weaknesses after the flop, where you could potentially stack them, and seeing as most of the fish won't hang around for long, you need to take them.
Post-Flop, it depends on the opponent.If they are weak-tight, then bluff flops to steal. If they are calling stations, then bet only for value. Then trap the maniacs.
These fish are not going to be there generally for long, and they are your best chance to build a stack early on, which is useful for the later stages.
