Bayou Texar is loaded thick with them. From 17th trussel all the way inland. One throw and you got more than enough. O*D*W

Whether fishing from my kayak or throwing my cast net I see them everywhere. Just watch for something making swirls on the water. Chances are if it isn't mullet or pinfish, its going to be menhadden.

The little pier on the gulf breeze side of sikes is almost always full of menhaden and LY. Thats our usual baitstop, just take a few throws with a 5'-7' bait net so you dont have to lug a big heavy one back.

How do you get to that side? I always fly past it to fast(heading to pcola beach side) to really see how to get in.

When you come around the bend at the beach sign there's a right turn lane at the same point as the merge lane. There's always a few cars parked there at the seawall. Just park there and take the sidewalk to the pier. I haven't been there in a while but I've heard it's still closed from Isaac. They still run along that end of the seawall though.
