Default Does anyone here fish near Freeport? (Inshore)

I have been in Freeport between Midbay bridge and 331 bridge so many times I don't think there are any fish? I'm in a boat, sick of drownding shrimp, any thoughts or tips? I have been up rivers, still no luck. Want to learn to fish the bay but am close to sinking the boat! HELP

tI don't fish in the area from Midbay to 331 bridge except now and then in Alaqua Bayou....but do fish the river delta area in the east end of the bay. Birds are working the bait between the 331 bridge and the east end of the bay. This area should be picking up soon to better 'catching' as folks are starting to work the lower river area and it's tributaries for specks and reds. Right now there are large bait schools around the river delta early in the morning but catching is still hit or miss. This week when the bait comes down the river around 0630 to 0730 they are being chased by large schools of lady fish. There could be specks and reds in there as well. Can't really tell but there is a lot of top water activity. I'm mullet fishing and see all this activity. Last week porpoise and at least one shark was way up the river working the bait so a guy reported one morning.
A couple of weeks ago friends were night yak fishing the lights around docs in Hogtown Bayou and did well on specks and reds and were able to keep a couple of reds. The rest were below slot.
If this area fits your type of fishing you might look that way as the water cools a little.

The only areas I have fished near Panama City is West Bay with launching at Burnt Mill Creek or the new ramp on Crooked Creek. Both area on hwy 388. There is a ramp under the Intercoastal bridge on hwy 79 which is right at West Bay. If you like bigger bay water the pass to the gulf is a popular spot. My river boat will not handle the pass but there are a couple of TV shows out of PC that report on that area fairly often. Good luck.
