in shore problems
I currently fish out of a kayak and have been enjoying the fishing both in and off shore. For a few months, I loved the Eglin AFB flats and got my share of reds and trout. I've tried Cinco Bayou and Poquito Bayou near the Shalimar bridge with no success. Can anyone give me some advise for these areas? I've tried topwater, gulp soft baits, different types of spoons and popping corks. My efforts work on the flats but not around docks or deeper water. I'm puzzled on what I'm doing wrong.

might just have to get deeper into the column; sure the fish are holding deep in the heat of the day.

Try a 1/4 jighead and a softplastic that's appropriate to the water color/clarity. Clear water, light color lure. Dark water, dark lure. I'm a fan of root beer with gold speckles but the color's not as big a deal as the movement.
Try side-casting to get your lure to skip up under the dock a ways. Leave the bail open for at least 3-5seconds or longer if it's a deep dock. You want it to sink all the way to the bottom. Then use short sharp hops to work it back out from under. Vary the frequency and speed of the hops until the fish let you know what they want.
I prefer to use braided line for it's lack of stretch and med heavy or heavy inshore rods with a fast tip action. Fish with tighter drag than you normally use on the flats and be ready to start cranking ASAP or you're get wrapped and broken off!
