Default Advice needed

I've been land locked for a couple years due to motor being stolen off of the boat. Got it back and up and running last year. Starting to get back to inshore fishing and could use advice on what to look for and use.
Thanks!

Where do you plan to fish, lakes, rivers, bay. You say inshore so I figure that you must mean the bays or sound in what area. Pensacola, Mobile etc.

From escambia bay to Pensacola bay and sound. I know a couple of spots for like snapper but not a clue on what to do for redfish.

I would develop a relationship with a local bait shop, preferably where you will launch your boat. Tell them what you need and I'm sure that they will give you good advice. Their customers are their livelihood and they usually take care of them.

Something I like to do is use google maps on satelite setting. Look for grass flats that way. Gives you an idea of where to launch and where to fish.

Been studying my charts and trying to read up on what to look for. I will certainly look into that!

Launch at shoreline park, oriole beach, or some other boat ramp in the sound. Start trolling motoring either East or West and throw jigs or live shrimp at the docks as you pass them. Make 3-5 casts and if nothing happens, move to the next one. When you find one with fish on it, they'll let you know right away and be ready to hang on!

Good luck!
