Depends on what I'm fishing for and where/how I'm fishing. For the majority of the fishing around here on the flats and stuff for trout/reds, popping cork.

If you need to fish deeper, or just want to drift over structure, use a slip bobber. That way you can adjust depth quickly.

If just going to use it on the flats, then stick to the popping cork so you get the noise and vibration. Also, yes, get rid of that doa shrimp and put on a live bait hook. I like to use 2/0s on my popping corks.

popping cork
The louder the click the better.

Depth of water is the key. On the flats, a popper, clicker is king. In deeper water, if you're going to cast, you need a slip bobber.
