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.

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.

does anyone use a gulp shrimp under a popping cork?
That’s definitly a thing. You just have to keep it moving. That’s why I prefer live bait with them. Because if the fish are wanting a slower presentation, you can can just drift the bait by them and let the bait do it’s thing.

But again, that is common. If you get on YouTube, there are ton of videos that combine popping corks with gulp or doa products.
