First time night fishing on Galveston pier - any tips? - 10/22/20 02:15 PM

Hi all! I am very new to fishing and have been to Seawolf park twice and Galveston Pier once. Am planning to try out night fishing at Galveston pier tomorrow and was wondering if anyone could share fishing tips. Will be using fresh dead shrimp (purchased from Fiesta) on a 7 ft medium heavy fast rod. A couple questions I have --

1. How to pick a spot on a jetty to fish? I've read that uptide is good, but where on the jetty?
2. What depth to fish? Live shrimp at the bottom, popping cork with a (?) ft leader, silver spoon?
3. Any other tips?

Thanks so much for all your help!
