I have been using mostly frozen shrimp but I recently got a cast net and some 4" "Gulp Alive Shrimp". After reading the forums for a few days I think I've been fishing with too small of a hook (size 2). So, I'm going to try a size 5 or 6....with a carolina rig? (am I on the right track?) I'm self taught and have no one to call and ask. Everything I know or want to know comes from the internet!
Also, I'm wondering if I would have a better chance at catching a bigger fish at the sea wall in Pleasure Island or the Umphrey Pier?
