I personally have not been, but there have been numerous reports in the last few weeks in the kayak fishing section about going out there and being successful with the reds at night. I am not sure of the titles of the post, but I remember reading them, lol.
Best of luck.

Last friday night a trio of us went out in kayaks and we caught several reds between 29"-36" and one at 20". Big ones were on menhaden. I got bit off by sharks a few times fishing gulp. We were out for about 5 hours but action was spotty and most of the reds were caught within an hour period. 10-12" white trout were extremely thick the whole length of the bridge.

3-mile has been good and also Garcon. Bite seems best right after dark, using live shrimp and dead white trout. Hard to get one in the slot, most are too big.
3-mile on Gulf Breeze side near the little bridge hump. Garcon in the center, or Gulf Breeze side shallow, between pilings 20 and 25 have been good. Some old nasty large Drum also.

Thanks for the replies guys! We used to take live shrimp and fresh mullet for cut bait and tear their a** up at night. I need to get back out there. I know most of them are too big to keep, but I like using light tackle for the thrill, "run" and the fight.
