Hey Folks,





I just moved to this area in early December and am looking forward to putting my old 1960's Starcraft in the bay. I'll be launching from the Niceville area I believe, as it's the closest to home. I've fished freshwater most of my life, with a few excursions out on party boats and piers. I plan on staying inshore and fishing the docks, structures, grass and perhaps do some trolling. I'm hungry for advice on where, what to use, etc... Without giving away your secret spots, I welcome any tips ya have. Redfish and snappers are a whole new ball of wax for me, and although I enjoy a learning curve, I also enjoy having a few in my cooler.





Thanks All-





Clay

Launching in Niceville I would....

Find Trout in deep holes and canals like grass lake in BWB area or lake pipin. Use DOA's or any other bait on the bottom.

The mid-bay bridge is also a good place to hookup a variety of fish. Baits I would use would be gulps or any live bait fishing around the pilings.

Red fishing is very similar to bass fishing. Fish structures (docks) with gulps, spoons, and DOA's. The flats for reds is just plain fun...good luck!

I am going to be in Destin the week of March 14, is there any good wade fishing in Choctawhatchee Bay for Reds or Specs? I did pretty good on grass flats last august with bass assasins and spoons but i know the water will be much cooler this time of year.
