    For trout, I would focus on drop-off's and deep holes. There is some great trout fishing around Garcon Point bridge right now. Again, use Navionics and locate drop-offs and deep holes. Early morning you can catch them on the flats but they will move out as it gets warmer. Favorite trout bait is a topwater early then move to a mirrodine or a Zman jerk shad. Another great place for trout is the grass flats in the ICW. Naval live oaks and Tiger Pointe have some good grass flats. Cast over the grass and retrieve through pot holes.

    Hope this helps. If you want to get up and fish sometime give me a shout.

    Tight Lines!!!

    Hey Surf,
    I saw where you have been posting wanting to catch some specks and reds. Just figured I would send you a quick message. There are some great redfish spots in upper escambia right now. Some spots will get better the hotter it gets and some wont. For summer, focus on the outside of the grass. If you have some type of Navionics chart (they make a great iPhone app called Navionics Marine & Lakes USA) look for areas away from the grass that get shallow (1-2ft.) Also look for birds diving. This time of year that often means redfish have some bait worked up. For baits, I throw topwater, mirrodine, and soft plastics. I prefer Zman baits. They are new to scented saltwater plastics but they are incredible. They don't ware out like gulp.
