Default 3mb bull red bait?

Been trying for a while to catch some bull reds under 3 mile. I have used pinfish and live shrimp free lined and carolina rig thinking that would be the best two options but guess I was wrong. I have only caught some small sharks and blue fish. what are you guys that are catching the big fish using? Any help with bait and rigging would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys!

Could you use small black snapper as red fish bait?

I would'nt dare, they taste 2 good when they reach legal size. That being said I would be worried about being in possesion of any undersized regulated fish. JMO lettem grow.

I could be mistaken, but I am pretty sure it is against the regulations to use any game fish for bait, regardless of size. Can someone correct me if I am wrong? Thanks!

Regulated fish have to be in whole condition (live or dead).
