Default Surf fishing near an estuary...

Hey everyone, I have a question regarding "estuaries". I live near several bodies of water/lakes that connect and run into the gulf. I have not fished right next to these openings yet, but I am thinking that this good be a great spot to surf fish? Please let me know your thoughts and reasoning behind this. I just started surf fishing, so I dont want to go and waste my time fishing in a bad location if this is not a good idea. I will just stick to the holes and troughs if so. Thanks in advance!

Default Choke Points

It would be a bit more helpful if you would mention which estuaries. That said, any place that the current is choked down increasing the velocity of the flow and creates a turbulence that confuses bait fish, flips them over or causes them to have to fight to stay in place. Larger predators with more muscle and swimming ability love these places for ambush and attack. Also, all types of food gets flushed out of an estuary on a dropping tide. Food for bait which attracts larger fish. Good luck. When you say surf fishing, I assume you mean fishing from a beach on the bay or bayou? One of the biggest trout that I have ever seen caught came from an area like that, caught by a guy fishing from the bank.

Yes, I will be fishing from the shore/beach. The area I'm speaking of is In Grayton beach. There is a lake that flows into the gulf currently. (I say "currently", because sometimes it closes up and does not connect) I have seen quite a bit of marine life near the mouth while I was stand up paddle boarding. Sounds like this could be a decent spot to fish.
