I would use a mirror-lure. Like a twitch bait. also the super spoon jr is a great one. I catch lots of reds on it.

 I would try, shrimp, pinfish, small crabs, finger mullet, and cut baits are excellent for catching Redfish. They can be fished under a float or free-lined into currents past structures or grass flats where the fish are. I have had good luck with this lure as well SUPER SPOOK JR.

I've used most of the others but haven't tried the Super Spook Jr.  Will have to check that out. Thx

We use mullet and shrimp (at night). Better fishing at night. No lures for us.
