Surf fishing rigs

I was wondering about attaching a float above my baits on a pompano type rig so the weight is on the bottom but the bait is suspended off the bottom say maybe 6 and 12 inches. The float would still be underwater due to the sinker size, but still suspending the bait, theoretically, off of the sand. Would this make it more visible to desired games fish and not so readily availed to the cursed pickers like the dreaded pinfish. I am going to engineer a few rigs and try this idea in a few weeks when I come down. Any thoughts? Or will it not catch whiting still? Thanks guys.:fishing:beer:

Thanks guys!

I kinda thought that with most of the surf fish with mouths pointing down, but will still give it a try. I always see fish, blues and what not, in the curls of the waves and thought it would target them better. I'll post as usual any luck.
That is the kind of rig I was thinking about. Thanks for the feedback. Be down in a few weeks to give it a try.:beer:
