we only use them for cats in the lakes around here no reds... we mostly use 30 to 50 lb test mono with a larger circle hook or worm hook like you would use to texas rig or carolina rig for large mouth bass. we do not normally use a weight but you can to help it sink down, use a 1/2 oz or 1 oz egg weight with a took pick suck in it to "peg" the weight about 6 inches above the hook use a 6 to 10 foot leader or longer if you are goin to be in deeper water we normally fish in water 20 to 25 feet. and we use shad we catch in the cast net cut in half hooked 1 time through for bait. if you can use brim it works best but some state do not allow game fish for bait and in nc brim is a game fish hope this helps

We use 2 liter bottles painted half pink and half white with a black stripe in the middle. We tie 80 lb braid and then a swivel sinker and 30 lb mono and throw on a treble hook.
