How do you fish live shrimp?

I have a push net to catch live shrimp but I don't know how to fish them. i.e. What rig would you use? Hook size and snood length etc?
Thanks in advance, Gail

They seem to work best for me under a float. I use a 1/0 hook and lightly nick them through the tail. They won't stand a lot of casting as for hooklengths you will have to work that out for yourself, keep changing depths until you find the fish.
I stopped using them last year as I found small pollack were becoming a problem, taking them before they got down to the wrasse and triggers
