Newbie Question! Sorry!
Ok... i have been surf fishing out at Chickenbone and Ft. Pickens with minimal success... We have caught a few bonito off the beach and a few snapper and grouper of the small jetties at Pickens. Fun for the girlfriend but im used to fishing big groupers and Snook in Ft.Meyers where i grew up.
Is it just me or does the fishing seem a little slower here then in the southern regions? I know warmer water temps hold alot more bait down there!
I love inshore and dont have a boat right now so where can i do and maybe some tactics for catching trout and reds in the bay surf fishing/wading. Tried the flats off of the first battery at Pickens yesturday with no luck at all.
Second... I know around march or april the bait starts kickin up and the Spanish and Kings start hitting beaches. Lookin forward to that! Is this right?
Third... i love sightfishing reds in the backwaters and trout on the flats. ?Where is the best place to do this? Can you get in the back of Blackwater Bay pretty easily with a boat and how good is it back there?
Sorry for all the questions just lost in the new area and kinda frustrating! Alos trying to gear up on knowledge when it comes to the fall.
Ps. I have searched forums and cant really gather the info im looking for so i have tried on my own...honestly...haha

If you want to catch Kings and Spanish, wait til the Fall. They get pretty good sized coming in the bay to feed before heading out for winter. I think Spetember through November is the King of the Bay Tournament. Not sure on the dates, but its around then. Also, right now is a good time to catch specks holed up in the bayous. They get pretty shallow durring the day. You might catch some slot reds in the flats and around the docks. IMO, fishing between the Pass, Navy Pointe, and 3-mile bridge is great. You can catch just about anything within that triangle. Welcome to the Panhandle! O*D*W
