Default Fishing dock lights

I haven't ever tried fishing dock lights before and was wondering what the best technique is? Live shrimp - Carolina or popping cork? Lures same thing as day? 17 mr?

10-12 lb test mono, your favorite lite open face spinner & 6 to 6.5" fast action graphite rod. Change the hook and retie when you feel the first fray.

Have to agree with Mac's methods and tackle but I like to go really light; like 4 to 6 lb. mainline and 8 lb. Flouro leader. As far as the time is concerned, I think it is better to give them a couple of hours to settle down after sunset and the bait to get attracted and aggregate to the area. After than, it is up to the tide and the current to dictate the sweet spot in the bite.
