We started out using mud minnows and didn't get anything throughout the day. She said she wanted to try a Gulp shrimp on a popping cork. The set up that she was using (which is her's by the way) had 30lb braid tied to 30lb fluoro on a med spinning rod. We were fishing on the rising tide working it down the grass and on the second cast she landed a 5lb 11oz red drum measuring 28'. She fought the fish for about 5 minutes. He was released back to make another anglers day.
