Plastic paddle baits with 1/4 and 3/8 ounce jig heads
Best colors are white/chartreuse tails, white, creole shrimp (Matrix Shad brand) and plain chartreuse.
Avocado with red glitter is a time tested good bait for specks in the surf (for me ,anyway)
I have seen people use the old style shad rigs -2 baits rigged on one leader- and often catch 2 at a time although they do seem to be smaller fish.
Top water baits (when the surf is mostly calm) are good in any colors of red or pink, chart again is good. Top Dogs are a popular brand for this
Sinking or suspending twitch baits in red,chart,or hot pink are also good. Mirro Lure is a major brand
I always wear a life jacket when fishing the beach as insurance that I come back without swimming to a near by rig first.
Hope this helps.
