same way you fish for any other fish. pomp rig and fresh shrimp or live sand flea. I've caught them off gold spoons, silver spoons, and I've heard gotchas work great too. they pretty much eat anything.

I've never seen them in the surf (because I don't surf fish much), but they're always inshore over grass beds. Wherever you think you'd find Specks, you'll probably find ladyfish too. A school of them will cause a small commotion on the surface, they make a distinct fluttering sound with their tails when they're feeding. I seem to always catch them on a jighead with any soft plastic attached, they aren't too picky about color, flavor, or even hook size. Since you're already surf fishing, I recommending cutting them up and using them as bait to catch something more desirable, I'm sure something out there will eat them.

Yeah wade out and cast a gotcha with some sharp hooks into or as close to the second sand bar as possible and hang on, they're a fun fight

And like said before, chop em up and cast them back out and a big red or shark will come pick it up
