I've always believed a fun way for kids to fish croaker is under a popping cork (assuming you're not in 12' of water) because they get the visual effect too. If you're fishing the ICW or drop-offs near deep channels, then freeline is the way to go.

Good luck!! I'm expecting Friday to be pretty wild already, most people have off. I'll be out there soaking croaker bright and early.

I only fish artificial these days. But I used to fish at night with ballyhoo at the POC Jetties (thus the name). I would strongly recommend that you learn how to tie a good snell knot. It might only make a small difference, but every little edge contributes to success. I think it's even more beneficial with croaker than with ballyhoo.

Trout teeth aren't like kingfish teeth, but they will wear on a leader. You want to keep an eye on the last few inches, including the knot. I used to have a dozen or so snell rigs tied before a jetty trip.

Even if you don't believe it helps, you have to admit it looks really cool. Here is a picture, and a link to a good article about snell knots and why you might want to use one:
