I typically fish in those depths and I typically use a knocker rig. Speaking from my experience the most effective way to fish it is to let your weight sit on the bottom, hold your rod tip still, and little to no slack between the weight and the rod tip. I catch 90 percent of my fish with this rig/technique. I always use as light of weight as possible, and very rarely does it tangle for me.

So you are keeping the weight up against the hook? Do you ever let the line out so the bait/hook moves away from the weight?

I use it 60% of the time I fish out in the gulf. I do it a bit differently though, I put about 6-8ft of leader and a small glow in the dark rubber bead around the knot on my hook. Works wonders on mangos and gags during the full moon and even during the daytime. Usually never go heavier than a 2 oz but most the time I stick to 3/4 or 1 ounce.
