    Default Speckled trout fishing on pier

    Can someone please show either a photo or by diagram type of right used to fish live shrimp from pier to catch speckled trout. I've seen alot of people fishing for them at oak island in summer but not sure type of right they use. seems like a 2 hook with a couple of fettuccine between them.

    Not peri fishing but I often use a 3/8oz Hank brown hook up style jig head and pin the shrimp on through his face. Straight up through the horn Just before the two black spots in his head.

    The regulars on Johnny Mercer's including some of the guys that work there were using gotcha plugs. They were bouncing them on the bottom and reeling in a little slower than when jigging for blues. And I saw the evidence for myself that it was working.
