Default SW FLA rigs?

I'm going to Florida next week(booked a cheap last minute deal) I was wondering what custom rigs would work down there? I guess the 7/0 circle and octopus hooks wouldn't be appropriate for fishing for Pompano, reds and black drum since I ordered these already for surf fishing NJ for Stripers, any advice would be helpful on ordering some new rigs to fish shrimp(most common used bait in Fla) Im wondering if I order now will I have them in time for next Wednesday/Thursday?
Thanks

I guess for Pompano I don't see a hook size (and seems a bit large) but I think what you have is ok for drum from what I can tell.

Exclamation Re: SW FLA rigs?

7/0 hooks are fine for redfish and black drum. If there are really big Black Drum around, say +40 pounds. Get big strong hooks, 10/0 octopus hooks or XX strong circles like Owner Super Mutu's, they would NOT be too big. Big Black Drum have powerful jaws and break hooks all the time.



Pompano using shrimp, depends on the size of the shrimp. Popcorn shrimp, 5/0 octopus on a fish finder slider rig. "Normal" sized shrimp a 6/0 octopus hook.

Hook size comparison charts @ http://trophyrigs.com/hooks.html

Wednesday 11/9 delivery possible if you get your order in by Sunday night 11/6. Any later than that would be a crap shoot with the postal service.
