Default why does johnson beach fishing suck so bad?

i don't get it.

people are posting perdido bay, hell even ft pickens surf fishing reports with success.

and then j beach is only catfish on murky days and maybe some ladies on clear days.

is it the depth? the topography? if you go 10 miles east or west the fishing is much better. is there something like the bermuda triangle magnetic field that repels fish away? help me out here understand and give me a reason to drive further away

^^^ interesting cause when i go no one there catches anything. i walk the beach and ask.. plus i snorkel out there to the 1st and 2nd bars and i don't see anything except an occasion sting ray.

i fish all times of the day. using a double or triple rig with a 2-3 ounce pyramid.. same rig i've been using all my life. i used to fish the atlantic side and the fishing was far superior, i'm talking tons of schools of whiting

also how can you say to fish dawn when the place opens at 8am? and dusk is tricky cause you gotta be out by sunset. so you pack up a good 20 minutes beforehand to make sure you are out .. but i don't believe this to be the problem

i have caught plenty of fish in perdido and pcola beach all times of the day. i just think jbeach there is something going on where the fish are just not there

It is on the west side of the pass, beaches always move to the west, which is why McRea fell into the pass.

The fish do not want to hang out west of the pass.

Bad Juju.

Pensacola Pass has moved to the west. The Fort at Pickens was once within a stone throw from the waters edge. Now look how much land is there.

Fort McRea's location is on the bottom of the pass now.

Beaches move to the west.

Ever took a Fort Pickens Ranger Tour?
