Default Pattern

Hey guys i fish freshwater a lot and I have always fished inshore for specks flounder and redfish but I wanted a new challenge. All the other times i had been inshore it had been one day you really catch them in one spot and then the next nothing. I dont know if i am applying bass knowledge where it shouldnt be but bass usually have patterns where all the fish depending on the time of year will group up on all the same types of things. Is this true for redfish and trout as well or is it just you guess on where to go and just hope? Also is there any specific lures? All answers will be greatly appreciated.

From salt water I've noticed the fish follow the bait more so then in fresh. Also have to combat with tides. Some spots are awesome in high tide, low tide produces nothing but cat fish.

I grew up fishing inshore but learned bass fishing tournaments so going back to fishing inshore I tried to put the same correlation together as well when I started fishing inshore.
There is a pattern to the inshore fish just like bass but its not really a method to HOW to catch them its more of WHERE to catch them. Also, don't focus on the spawn either, its not at all like bass.
Reds are the most similar to bass. They relate to structure and they use vibrations to feed just like bass do. Right now I have been having the most luck finding flats that are close to a deeper water area. They move up to the flats to feed and then push back into the ledge when the water heats up.
