Default from mud to clear water

Hello from Houston :-)

I normally fish muddy waters of Galveston or Matagorda, but next week will spend close to Perdido Pass.

I will spend some time searching this forum tomorrow (after 8h drive), but meanwhile I hope this post will draw some comments. In particular I look for:
- a good guide (1, maybe 2 full days of fishing). Someone mentioned Jessie's trout lodge -- are they good?
- an advice wrt wade-in spots within few miles distance, preferably with a chance of catching flounder
- an advice on general difference between fishing clear water (as opposed to muddy) -- i.e. lures and behaviour

Thank you.

P.S. I frequent 2coolfishing, but someone there suggested to give this forum a try.

Sam's is a gas station and bait and tackle shop in orange beach. The staff is really knowledgeable and helpful. It's about 10 minutes from the pass

I could see at least 15 feet down right now -- how it is "not clear"? Back in Galveston 15 inches visibility is considered "clear water". :grin:

Anyways -- can't find sams on google maps. Can someone throw a link at me, pls?

Status update:
- found Chris , retrieved priceless info
- tried using it in afternoon by Perdido pass, no luck
- ended up wading almost to my shoulder and caught few ladyfish on 3rd bar
- at some point dolphins showed up and were hanging next to me waiting for a treat -- every time I release ladyfish, they'd chase tired fish and eat it. That was quite cool, actually. One dolphin was probably biggest I ever saw
- ended up with multiple jellyfish stings (current was pushing them east)
- went on forum, read bunch of stuff, including Chris's posts. We'll see if it'll help me tomorrow

Thinking about going there now with lights, maybe I'll find some flatties in the first but
No gig though
