I caught a HUGE Pinfish once. It had to weigh at least 3#!! As for rigging Gulp shrimp, just use a straight shank hook... You could always swap and use DOAs... they are already rigged!
Help somebody if you can!

I have had good luck using a worm hook with gulp shrimp under a popping cork. The barbs seem to hold the gulp on the hook, and I don't have to reposition it as often.
