Yep. I usually go with a 1/4 oz., unless I am fishing in alot of current or real deep. You just want to slowly drag the shrimp along the bottom. I usually leave about 2-4 feet of leader in between the shrimp and the weight so he has enough room to swim around and look good for the taking.

I caught my limit of reds and several flounder doing this 2 weekends ago. Just count on losing some shrimp to the junk fish which can get frustrating.

Also - I've caught them on silver and gold spoons as P3ORION states. There are times, however, that it really doesn't matter what you throw at them...

I personally like wakin the dog style top water. There is nothing better than seeing a good red rise up with his back out behind a fast walking lure, so he can suck it in with his mouth down towards the bottom. Electric excitement.

I'm sure its not...but it sounds easier(more dependable) than freshwater fishing. I hope so anyways

I would say without a doubt that this is not true.

Live bait and shrimp, Carolina rigs, topwater plugs, artificials, Gulp! and DOA baits all work. On a slow day, be prepared to figure out what the fish are interested in.

One thing I would do if I were you is to check the tides daily and figure out when the water is moving.

I like the top water lures, especially early morning when the water is smooth as glass in the ICW. You can actually hear the strikes. Sometimes, the trout doesn't get a clean bite and knocks the lure clean out of the water. However, if there is grass floating on the surface, you might as well forget about using any top lures. You'll spend more time time picking the grass of the treble hooks than fishing.

DOA or GULP shrimp works well also.
