Go buy a couple packs of 3" Gulp! shrimp and rig them on a 1/8 or 1/4oz jighead depending on the current. Go to Garcon point bridge and see how many casts you can make. Go pilon to pilon starting in about 8ft of water and let your bait sink to the bottom before working it. Youshouldcatch quiet a fewkeeper trout. If that doesnt work then I would suggest booking a trip with one of the local guides in the area. It will help you learn a few things for the future. Its like anything else. You need to learn the proper techniques before you try something or you will be unsuccessful.

Ican tell you this... Over the last couple years of doing inshore fishing i definately pay much more attention to the tides than i used to. I will always catch a moving tide. Preferably a outgoing high tide.. Just like above, you have to keep with it, find what works for you. Confidence is everything.Before long you will definately know what works for you and what locations seem to produce more fish than others. I went out Thursdsay night and was doing very well but I kept moving to see if I could find bigger trout and came upon a spot in which we pulled 13 reds out of. Now I know a little more about the location I was fishing and will check this "Honey Hole"out more often. Keep at it, Jason

If you want specks you can go to the grass flats off of Navarre (couple miles from the toll) and catch all you want on live shrimp. Bring lots of shrimp to feed the pinfish and get ready to release a bunch of 8-10 specks and keep three or four good specks over the morning. Best Ive gotten there recently was a 24" speck right after my buddy hooked a 22" red. If it gets windy try a poppin cork. You can get all the pinfish you want there too and that makes good bait. Match the hatch as they say. Good Luck.
