Default gulf area vs atlantic coast

Question for anyone familar with both areas. I grew up in Savannah and hope to end up around Pcola. Is there much difference in bay-gulf tactics vs atlantic coastal fish,shrimping or crabbing. The water is obviously much clearer than our dirty mess but are there any other differences that matter. This is my first post and have really enjoyed your forum.

in short yes their is a ton of difference can you narrow this down a bit what do you like to fish for do you fish inshore only what are yiou wanting to catch etc. as far as one of your questions crabs aere the same shrip are hard to find and yes the water clarity is unreal in the winter but can be dingy in the summer but not tannic like you are used too fishig .

There is a huge difference, having grown up on Merritt Island and catching Trout to 10 lbs on a regular basis the difference is big time, plus there are almost non exsistant Snook up here also. So there are definitely big time differences.

There are a box car load of Reds and alot of nice Trout, but few and far between Gator Trout.

Like a Bull Red, a Gator Trout is just a big boy.

Negative, not a joke. Just like stated above, it is referred to as usually over 8# Trout.
