Well, let me say this.....try starting with live shrimp. Use 10 pound braid main line and 20lb flourocarbon leader. NO WEIGHT.
Head hook shrimp
Cast from a low vantage point well beyond the fish, hopefully upcurrent or in front of them by 5 to 7 feet.
keeping your rod high so as not to "line" the fish (hit with your line) reel the shrimp slowly over in front of the fish. if they do not eat it immeadiately, give it a slow subtle twitch!
This may take 10 trys to work, but it will. Once you feel you perfect this method then we can talk artifical.
I am still trying to get bonefish to eat a jig or fly.....it happens once in a while but not often. Reds are obviously more attentive to eating artificials, but it takes practice.
You have another less "hunting" like alternative.
If you determine what tide stage fish are feeding in a certain location, you can arrive before they do and set up upcurrent from the feed location.
Stake out quietly and beging chumming with fresh shrimp and blue crabs. That will flow down current and bring the feeding fish to you. You can have small quater sized blue crads on 2/0 hooks laid out in their normal feeding location and wait.....or you can cast the shrimp slightly upcurrent ahead of the fish when you spot them.
If you leave shrimp out instead of blue crab you stand a very likely chance of catching "undesireable" fish and blowing your 1 shot at the reds......
I can always come to NC and show you....that's option 3!
