Default Specks or reds or anything?

Been working Escambia Bay around scenic and some over around Yellow river for Specks, Reds, anything that'll bite...no luck except for some white trout of no real size and the occasional crab.

Need some help - don't need your secret spots but I'm boatless, limited to land, and would be happy with even a BITE. I've tried live bait, cut bait, plastics, topwater, nothing.

So, help a frustrated newbie out. What's biting this time of year? Where should I go? What's on the end of your line?

Thanks in advance.

If you don't mind driving a little, Try Alabama Point/ Perdido Pass.

Try Bayou Chico. I used to live near there and there are Specks and White Trout all over. It's slowed down since the water has cooled a little but they'll usually hit cut shrimp or lures. Baitfish are still in the Bayou as well. Storm Wild Eyed Shad or Anchovy seem to work best.

Here's an example of what you'll catch there....

There are some nice size ones there. I catch and release them, don't think I would eat anything caught out of the bayous. Most of them are pretty dirty with all of the industrial pollution.

Don't worry about not having a stinking boat. sometimes we do much better without them, Especially for the spooky stealth minded Specs! Keep working deep holes and moving tides around Escambia & Scenic...They're there...See Inshore REPORTS..And keep on keeepin' on. I love wading and fishing shorelines!
