Default Drift fishing

I struggle to catch any type of fish when live bait free line fishing. I go right out to the pass where the shallower water meets deeper water and I freeline bait on either a wire leader or fluorocarbon leader and still never land a fish or even get bites. I have caught a lot of decent sharks but not recently. Was wondering if there were any tips on drift fishing or if there are any spots that are better to go to around the pass. I don't have a gps or depth finder and I also just use heavy spinning combo when fishing. I have caught a king before and a 6ft shark on my rod and reel. Was just trying to figure out how to freeline live bait better. Not sure why i can't get bites

is there a certain depth I should keep my bait at (kite for surface, balloon, or weigh em down to the bottom)?

I have way better luck trolling with a pink duster and live or dead cigar minnow...but structure always is great to drift over
