Default Couple questions..

I live on sound side drive on the water and fish the grass flats a lot. Either out of the kayak or dock. Still working on getting a boat. I usually use a poppin cork with live pin fish (they are all in the grass). Is it better to use a j hook or circle. I find myself missing a lot of fish and cant figure out why. Second question, I just about get spooled at least once every time I go out until I lock it down and then my 30lb leader will usually get cut or bit through. Any idea what it could be? Sharks possibly? Any info on you guys favorite baits (artificial or live) would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks guys, P8riot34

I find that the sharks love those pinfish in the bay areas. I have hooked up on quite a few black tip while drifting pins by Pensacola Beach on the sound side.

I use circle hooks only fishing off the dock or in the boat. The Mutu Light Circle are great. I use the 1/0 and 2/0 off the dock for Redfish and Trout. The small Blacktip sharks are showing real good now. Every year at this time.
