I am new to the area, just took a job with the fire department, and have been reading the forum for a few weeks now. My first two trips to escambia bay and surrounding creeks were very frustrating because I didnt have one single bite. Where I came from its all flats fishing in about 10inches to 4 feet of water. Even in the winter topwater has been my go to so needless to say its been an adjustment for me over here. We use topwater, gold spoons and artificial plastics year round. Finally went and got a few of the MR-17 and hard plastic twitch baits yall seem to love. I guess I finally found some of the deep hole I read about on here because I finally hooked up. 3 reds and 5 trout on the day. first red was about 17'', second 20'' and the third was the one in the photo, 25''. All the trout were between 17-21''. I found a deep creek with lots of bends and i fished the points and the bends and started hooking up like crazy. My transducer is broken right now but I stuck my 8ft anchor pole in the water and never hit bottom so it was a pretty deep creek. Used the MR-17 silver with the blue top. Looking forward to posting more and hopefully setting some hook with yall in the future.
