Default Weather and fish depth/location

I saw from some posts that the warmer weather the past few weeks had some specks and reds moving to shallower areas. I'll be fishing next week and highs are forecasted to only around 68, 69. The only place I have to fish is a bayou with a dredged channel sourounded by flats and there are some docks in the area. There is also a 5- 6 ft or so hole of maybe 15 acres that sits between a boat channel and the flats.

This time of year, I'm usually almost toast if fish are not back up in the bayou or in the hole next to the flats. Is this weather cold enough that it has or will run them off, or would you think I'll have a shot at them in this type an area?

South side of Choctawhatchee bay east of the pass. FWIW, I'm still here. Here's what I've found:

Lots and lots of below AND bottom of the slot reds are here. More than I've ever seen this time of year, but all around docks. The first 5 or 6 I caught were all around 18", now they're trending down around 15-16". There are zero specks in the normal holes and I haven't found any reds out in their normal spots.

Usually on this trip for me, I have to work hard, but I can catch some specks with lots of hunting. Zero this year. Caught one short speck around the docks as a by-catch and that's all. I've been doing this at this time for maybe 10 years now and it's the first time I simply can't find any specks. Also caught one small but legal flounder.
