Trigger cost me $40.00You jokers just cost me about $12 with this thread. Heading to Southport in the morning and just got back from BPS (the only local retailer with a decent salt water selection). Bought the popping cork trigger recommended and DOA shrimp. Will give it a try along with my usual techniques.

Question about the setup you've mentioned Trigger. In no way questioning the setup at all, just trying to understand. What benefit is there to spooling braid and have a fluoro leader? My reels are spooled with 10lb fluoro tied to the popping cork, then my leader is 12lb fluoro.10-20 pound braid for your reel (I use 10) and 15 pound mono or fluoro leader material.
Great! There goes another $40.00Casting distance is much greater with braid than it is with mono or fluoro and in skinny water with spooky trout and reds that extra distance can mean the difference in catching one or two fish or catching 20.
Another thing about fluoro is that it sinks. So when fishing a Topwater lure it is a lot harder to do with fluoro than braid or mono.
I dropped $200.00, but haven't seen the same number of fish But I have managed to boat a few nice fish. I have yet to boat a flat fish thoughI spent $200 to get myself a surf Spanish setup based upon a thread I started myself- and it's caught exactly the same number of fish so far .....
