Default Surf rigs

What's everybody using for rigs for surf fishing? Double hook rig with circle hooks and a 3oz weight ? Red Carolina rig with circle hook ? What's the trick ? Haven't caught anything lately. I've used sand flees, shrimp, cut bait etc. I fish Navarre beach but nada ! Smh gonna give it another try sometime this week when the weather breaks. Hopefully I get something ! Thanks in advance.

I use both, and they are both effective. 2/0 circle hooks, and 2-3 oz pyramid weight. I use a 2 oz Carolina rig with cut bait. I've done well with reds on the Carolina rigs, blue fish as well. Buy a few pompano rigs too. I've caught some big bulls on pompano rigs..the hook is usually straight after landing one though. I might be the place you are fishing. Have you moved around, and scouted any good rips in the surf?

I just read about the rips in the surf. Kind of understood it. Next time I'm out I'll take a look.

Try to look for some deeper spots in between the bars, and on the edges where there are some cuts.

I prefer carolina rigs with big circle hooks for reds. Favorite bait is cut mullet or cracked crab with top shell removed. Ill throw a double hook rig in close for pomps though

You might be throwing out too far and landing in 12" of water on the sand bar. Not much going on there. Read the surf and find the holes.
