Default Simpson river questions

Where what and how do I need to work my lures to have a productive day catching fish near Simpson river landing? I mainly fish dock lights in perdido but Simpson is much closer to my home and would like to give it a try. Any advice will be greatly appreciated

Good luck. If you ever see any schools of bait near there, let me know. No schools of bait, no predators.

Head a little north and fish the back waters. Frogs, Black plastic worms and Gold spoons. Plastic swim baits work as well. Bass, Redfish and Sunshine Bass. Enjoy!

Do I still need to find bait schools? Or is there structure holding fish?

i fish there pretty often. I usually work south of hwy 90 - the banks just south of the road usually hold trout. Mirrodines, rattletraps, storm swim baits (3 inch in pearl) have all worked for me. Try working around the small island just south of the road. The shorelines on the west side often hold reds. On flat water, Skitterwalks or other topwaters. Swimbaits, mirrodines, jig/gulp are all effective. There are usually schools of bait everywhere on the river - mullet, glass minnows, menhaden, etc. There is not a lot of structure except for the odd crab pot you may snag, most of the bottom is mud or sand. Lots of grass in the real shallow areas - 1-2 feet. Except for the channel near Jim's, it rarely gets over 6-8 feet deep.
