No usually won't bite at night but they are on fire right now during the day . Use a 3/4 oz egg sinker with a two foot leader on a 12 pound outfit. I also use a number 2 hook

Use just enough weight to get to the bottom with 15-20# flouro leader if using shrimp ill use a mustad short shank #2 if using crabs I like the mustad short shank #4 and drag it real slow staying in contact with the bottom

Egg sinker to get the bait to the bottom. 15 to 20lb flouro with a small hook. And ive had more luck with live shrimp than the fiddler crabs. You can also catch alot of black snapper this way off the bridge or pier.

black is dif from mangrove/gray snapper. But alot of people think they are the same. Everyone I know calls mangrove and black snapper the same fish. But with that rig you will catch them both around the pier or bridges when they are there.
