If you want to use artificials use Gulps or even DOA's. But live shrimp would be the best.

This year I am going to try the Storm Thin Fin in 1/2 oz white. I have a feeling it will be pretty good. Its the best imitation of thread fin I've seen.

5" JerkShads always works good for me. I use a wide gap lightly weighted hook....its nice and "stealthy"

1/4oz DOA Glow Shrimp...it will outfish live shrimp on most nights. Live lys or dead are good too. Mirrodines work well too.

I like shrimp imitations (1/4 oz DOA glow shrimp or Gulp!). Sometime hard baits work really well, I like to down size for stealth: MirroMinnow.

Still, I get my butt kicked by my fishing buddy with his fly rod. Glass minnow or shrimp patterns are deadly and stealthy. I bought a 6 wt. fly rod just for fishing lights - now we'll see!

Lots of big specks are caught nowhere near docklights with noisy topwater lures, especially during the full moon phase. Those big guys are cruising around looking for finger mullet and a surface lure will kill them. It is kind of neat to be working a topwater lure in the dark. You get keyed in on listening to the lure chugging away and then you get an explosion. Way more fun than fishing dock lights.
