Default Tarpon along the Beach

Any of you guys target tarpon this time of year off the beach. We were running up the beach along the second sand bar a few weeks back and came across a couple of good size schools. I had a couple of cobia rods with jigs but didn't figure to do much good with those. How do you fish them? Live bait, leaders, under weighted corks, etc. thx, SR

I've never tried it but I have heard that soaking a mullet (live or dead) just beyond the surf is a good tactic. From what I understand the tarpon that move through our area are migrating and not as interested in eating as they otherwise would be.
