Just got back from a long trip to NC to fish for redfish.  They were crushing live bait so I put together a video on how I like to fish for them.  Fairly simple setup that most people can do.  Was super simple from the kayak as most of where I fished was from 3 feet to maybe 8 feet deep.  I mainly use mud minnows but will occasionally switch up.  Anyways, hope you like it and find something useful.

That was some nice fish.  It looked like a great place to catch 'em,

Here on the Texas coast, mud minnows are definitely flounder candy, so much so that they won't let you even think of catching a red on em.

Croaker and cut crabs usually get you some nice reds, or black drum.

Thanks for posting, looking forward to more from you.

Thanks!  On the east coast it is different almost by state.  I did several days in GA and the go to is live shrimp, however in VA and NC live shrimp would get murdered by pinfish or catch trout most likely.  So we use mud minnows, live mullet, mud crabs and fiddlers (as long as the juvenile sheepshead leave them along, as well as fresh quartered blue crab.
