Moco 6p-8p Outfront after a serious thunderboomer and ground lightening strikes. On the fly with a half dozen short flat ones on a surf candy. Adult bunker within casting range with no worries.

Back at it Outfront with a slight west wind, knee high swell and 2 foot visibility on an outgoing tide. I was using casting gear and a slip float armed with a medium size killie.
Caught 15 shorts and one 24" that went 5 pounds.

About how deep do you set the stopper knot?

I would think the object is to set the bait to hang just above the bottom, more or less.
Do you put a split shot or two to get the killie to stay down?
I would think the same rig would serve with little mullet, too.

I'm not familiar with the use of a slip float, but just watched a couple YouTube videos to learn some rudiments.

this is the sequence treating from the rod tip to the hook.

Stopper knot
small bead
large bead
slip float
large bead
1/4 oz barrels sinker
large bead
Swivel
leader
hook.

Set the stopper so the float is flat on the water surface, but when a swell lifts the bobber, it suspends straight up and down. This way you know the barrel sinker is just touching bottom and allowing the killie, peanut bunker, mullet or small snapper to swim with the tide or current direction.
This way the rig seems to find the depressions where hopefully the big ones are waiting in ambush.

Ive been also using sea robin strips when I run out or can't catch the live swim bait.

Six inch Thill big fish slip bobbers are my favorite, but I am experimenting with the four inch when the live bait is of small size.

when you said you were ready for the big flatties, I forgot how thorough you are!

Thank you for the thorough explication, Jim.
Now I just have to find my way to the water at a time and pace to try it.
One more question: what size float do you favor?
