Default East bay or the sound for big reds?

I'm not too sure on the movements of reds through out the year, so just wondering where I'm more likely to find the bulls this time of year. I've been fishing around Tom king bayou in the bay and been seeing lots of action, but I've also been seeing a good bit near Woodlawn ramp but haven't seen any bulls.

Would around the Destin bridge be good? I have a small Jon boat so I'm limited where I can go

There's always big reds around the destin bridge. Big live pinfish, white trout, or cut bait is all good. The night bite should be good right now. Fish the down current side.

Default Bulls

Just outside the west jetty at the east pass.
Almost guaranteed to catch a bull red.
It's not uncommon to catch them with several hooks in their mouths where jetty anglers got broke off.
By boat is best. Not so sure you can get a john boat out there, but we used to at night. (I would launch at Destin Marina) I've caught them on incoming and outgoing tide.
It's a long walk on the rocks just to keep one red.
But if you just like the sport aspect, I'd say it might be worth it.

The bridges seem to hold bulls all year long. You can catch them at Garcon Point Bridge and also Three Mile Bridge (if you want to dodge the construction). I don't go at night but know people who do and they are catching big ones then. They definitely will bite first thing in the morning though. I didn't catch one today, all were slot fish, but I usually catch one or two every time I go out. You may have luck in East Bay for bulls right now, but I usually reserve that for October when it goes nuts out there by the power lines. I bet there are some big Jacks cruising out there now though.
