What do you think is the best means of catching them????

Live bait? If so what?

Cut bait? If so what?

Or lure? If so what kind

What kind of set up do you think is best. Standard weight swivel hook and bait or something like a Carolina rig?

I use a carolina rig with a 36" steel leader. I have had good luck with frozen cigars or northern mackeral. They will also hit on live pinfish or white trout. Alot of people use cut menhaden or mullet. Personally I have had my best luck with the cigars and northern mackeral.

I use a Rat-L-Trap more than anyother bait and catch quite a few redfish.

Maybe we can hook up sometime and you can show me how it's done. Past few times I've gone out fishing, I've been skunked, and I'm getting tired of it .

A Rat-L-Trap is a lure mainly used for bass fishing, but the redfish will bite it too. I also use the Cotton Cordell Spot and because they cost less.

I buy the saltwater Rat-L-Trap. White with red head is my favorite. Any flashy color like chrome or gold will work. I use CC Spots too. They are cheaper. Bought some the other day for $1.99 each.
