If there is no wind, put the shrimp and popping cork aside. Seriously — you've got to get used to fishing the sand pockets (pot holes) and put your time in doing it! This is a very important tip; don't try to revert back to drift fishing with shrimp and popping cork. It will take time to have confidence to do this type of fishing, but it is worth the effort because nothing is more effective on light wind or windless day. This type of fishing can be done with live mullet, cut mullet, dead shrimp, live shrimp, pin perch, piggy perch, ballyhoo or crabs. I like to use live bait predominantly when there is little wind, however I will almost always mix it up with cut bait too, just to add scent to the water. You can use everything from a jig head to a Carolina rig with various weights. We also add a water corks at times to get extra casting distance, which is very important on the days without wind!
