Default Fishing under dock lights

What's the best lure/ bait and technique? Live shrimp, casting lures, jigs, DOA shrimp? Thanks

Live bait works well for specks and small reds, the big reds and specks cruise the shadows. Try working a shallow diver or topwater just outside the light.

Skip-cast a small soft plastic up under the dock and then work it out. Sometimes, especially in S. FL they'll whack it as soon as it stops skipping. Vary the retrieve, sometimes they like a slow constant retrieve back out, other times they'll hit it as you jig it slow, other times they won't touch it unless you rip it out like a bat out of hell!

I like DOA shrimp for skipping and then reel slow. If I need to impart some action I like a 1/16oz jighead with a zoom fluke or DOA CAL jerkbait.

Good luck!
