If u wanna catch snapper or aj get some shimmano squid jigs...awsome baits...the skirts fall off and get torn up relatively fast but they sell replacements for cheap...but by far the best artificial bait for snapper

Sabiki rig=hardtail; or frozen menhaden
Artificial for snapper=diamond jig tip with anything, or a big feather jig tipped

If you're after trout, plastics is all you need. Just have to do some running to find the fish.

Bull minnows and such would work better out there rather than sandeels and shrimp style baits i suppose? Any particular colors?

High tide shrimp glo and chart. has been killer last 3 years and I've done well with sand eels also. Just like inshore fishing match the color with the water conditions.

During shrimp season, pull up behind a shrimp boat and ask for a bucket full of culled bait.
They will give you all the pogy, mackeral, squid, mullet and croaker they got. They are throwing them overboard anyway.
