Default Want to catch fish please help

Hey so I have lived here in Pensacoala for a year and a half now fish out of bayou grande and all areas you can get to in a 18 foot boat from there. Problem is i have only managed to catch a couple fish, a couple days ago i fished the pass fort pickens and a bunch of other areas with no luck and didnt feel like trading paint with other boats to catch sheep head around the jetties at the pass. So any help in finding some fish any kind at this point would be great. I have been fishing with live shrimp on carolina rigs, used cajun poppers with artificial gulp bait, i am not a novice fisherman(hahaha) i think i just am fishing the wrong spots. So any advise would be great thank you.

Keep moving... SOunds like you are doing everything right just maybe in the wrong spots or the wrong spots at the wrong times. This summer if you use the popping corks an live shrimp in the Sound you should have no problem catching fish.

Try places like the Naval LIve Oaks area... Tiger Point Canals area... Fish 3'-5- of water and look for bait. Right now the Pass is a really good location, the jetties are also still holding some fish. Just keep plugging along and you'll figure it out!

If I can ever help you please let me know!

Just like Capt. Brad said, keep moving around. The action has been slow since around October/November on the flats. Things are just now starting to heat up, so now it's time to start putting in the time on the water! If you are still having trouble, you may think about taking a trip with a charter captain such as Capt Brad, and see how we do things around here!

Hit up some deep water dock lights,always good for a fish.Live shrimp works well,and plastics.Cast past the glare and retrieve through the glare slow.

Good Luck

there's a direct coorelation to the amount of time bait is in the water as to number of fish caught, Haa!
Capt Brad's right on target.
